Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes diet dog


Avatar f tn I just got diagnosed with gestational diabetes.... anyone have any information? Will this harm my baby?
Avatar f tn Brought our 15 yr old min-pin cross, Tess, to the vet last August after noticing she was losing weight & wasn't her usual 'bossy' self! She was diagnosed with diabetes. Spent a week or two having the vet check her blood sugar at various times of the day. The vet requested we administer 2 injections a day of 6 ml canine insulin. We've followed this regimen faithfully ever since. After a month or so, she was so much better. Lately we have noticed she drinks & drinks tons of water!
Avatar n tn Well, I had a similar thing going on with my dog, but it appears to have resolved itself right now. If you have hot weather, and your dog has also been exercising hard, then you can expect she will drink more. Also if she has been fed anything which is salty..... BUT...suddenly drinking a lot more can be a sign of many things. Has she been spayed? If not, it can be a sign of the dreaded Pyometra. Unusual, but not impossible in a 4 year old.
810096 tn?1238860279 I see no difference ini him except this wetting problem.He is just tje sweetest dog and I know its not a spite thing with him.He really had a look on his litle face as though he was lost. I need help.
1404300 tn?1281302912 He also believes that what was first diagnosed as diabetes may also be related to the extensive steroid usage. I would like to change her diet and feed her home cooked food. I am sick of pumping chemicals into her. Can anyone offer me advice?
Avatar m tn We always fed my dog Natural Choice dry food, she liked it and did well on it because it contained all the vitamins and prebiotics. Now she is feeding her mighty dog wet in a can and my dog is getting fat and having bowel trouble, she won't switch her to the dry because she thinks the dog has to eat as soon as she puts out the food and the dog loves this food. I don't think the food is any good. Can you give me advice.
Avatar m tn She has regular urine tests but these have all come back as normal as can be with her kidney problems. She has been tested for diabetes but has come back negative. Do you have any ideas as to what is wrong with her? Thank you.
4105307 tn?1369535032 You were kind enough to respond to me Oct 2012. Her cushings makes her insulin resistant. The diet need for diabetes is so important, but there's not much chance her health will ever improve. Bless you for being a concerned cat lover.

Avatar n tn After 2 weeks, I developed a bad itching rash on my forearms. I stopped handeling the dog and the rash improved. However, during this time I had blood drawn for a physical. The results of the test were increased blood sugar (170) and blood pressure (160/70). Can these results be because of the dog?
Avatar m tn Liver problems can also be caused by poor or inappropriate nutrition. What do you feed your dog (please list all regular foods and treats)? Red gums can be caused by several things, including a build up of plaque (which in fact could also be the root cause of disease further down the anatomical tract, affecting organs if it has been going on for some years). Do you regularly clean your dog's teeth? Are they yellow in colour? Is there evidence of plaque build up?
Avatar m tn I have always fed her high quality dog food. However, I now also have a cat and the dog strongly prefers the cat food. I know a steady diet of only cat food is not a good idea. However, is there any harm in mixing a small bit of cat food in with her dry dog food as part of a daily routine? When I do so, she eats her food instead of the cat's food.
Avatar f tn My vet had offered Hill Science Diet m/d for my overweight cat Isabella. Currently I am transitioning my cats the ones are not overweight from Iams to Blue Buffalo Wilderness ( based on ingredients- less carbs/more protein). I am a Nurse and am trying to go about Isabella's weight loss plan scientifically, and would like some feedback. My plan is to feed her 7oz of the Wilderness dry food and 3.
Avatar f tn The best diet for a diabetic dog a no-grain, very low to no carbohydrate diet. The hills prescription diet you have listed is also good and it would probably be OK for your other dogs as long as they don't require their own prescription diets for other issues. Please take him to the vet ASAP to get him on appropriate treatment and to try to prevent comorbidities such as cataracts.
97615 tn?1212682189 Well, I had the 3hr glucose screening and it came back positive for gestational diabetes!!! I have done a bit of researching on the web for info but havent found too much. Can anyone make any suggestions on diet goods and bads until I see the endocrinologist??? Thanks ahead for any info anyone can give me.
Avatar f tn We lost our last dog of ten years to diabetes about two months ago. It was heartbreaking. We got our little pug when our daughter was 18months and they grew up together. They were very cute and she was very dear! We went to the Humane Shelter and got another dog that weekend. We already love her! She is 3 and beautiful! She looks like Little Ann from Where the Red Fern Grows. She has the most wonderful personality but is very shy and nervous.
1621269 tn?1327207089 I voted other becuase I didn't really follow the diet guidelines...it just so happened that my normal diet fell under a lot of them. I don't eat red meat so undercooked red meat was always out of the question. I don't eat seafood anyway. I'm not a big lunchmeat person but when I do eat it I like it warm anyway. As for caffeine. I'm a BIG caffeine junky. Under 300 mg (i think) of caffeine per day is ok according to some studies/docs.
Avatar f tn My husband complains that after I have been outside doing even mild activity I smell like a wet dog or "ozone". Could this be caused by a medication or medical issue? Is there anything I can do to stop it? This has only been an issue for last year or so.
Avatar n tn Just off the top of my head, I would suggest an avocado ( if, of course, you love avocados. like I do) . It has very healthy fat and many great nutrients. During tx we need to eat healthy whole foods and this fits the bill. Nutritional info below. According to this, we would need to eat almost a whole med size avocado, but one could tweek that. (it also gives us some good calories for those that don't want to lose weight) @somuchmore2....
Avatar n tn Dog, One thing I have found is that doctors do not seem to like to reconize links easily with Hep C and other problems. Around the time I found out I had HCV I had to be rushed to the hospital and have my gall bladder removed(2002). I had a pretty bad attack where I felt like the movie "Aliens" and an alien was going to burst out of my abdomen. It was really painfull and I had no idea what was happening to me.
426862 tn?1203591148 Even if it is something more serious such as bladder cancer, kidney disease, or diabetes, there are treatments that may be curative, or, if not curative, could at least extend lifespan with modalities such as surgery, holistic therapies, or Western medicine.
Avatar m tn Hi, everyone. Really hoping I can get some information for my elderly dog. I have a 15 year old rat terrier who's health has been failing rapidly over the past year. She's deaf, blind, has difficulty walking and standing and was recently diagnosed with diabetes. I took her in to the vet because she was doing so poorly and he diagnosed many things by sight.
897333 tn?1280394878 I have a 17 year old mixed breed, 52 lb dog "Bob", I will try to make this as short and to the point as possible. Bob was diagnosised last year with a mass in his chest by his trachea, we did not have further testing done because of age. The only way it was found is through X-ray when we took him in for a cough. Evidently it is no cancer, thank goodness because nothing has changed as far as coughing or his weight.
Avatar f tn I understand the KD Diet though it doesn't make sense to have sold you dry food for a possible kidney problem dog! Wet or canned would make more sense as you are trying to flush toxins from their system, period...I understand the Vitamin (actually an all around Antioxidant) , but I don't understand the steroids! Since you took her to see the Vet originally because she wasn't eating and drinking less indicates to me that something else is going on. Did she have fever when she was examined?
Avatar n tn I lost my first dog to pancreatitis and he had the same symptoms as your dog. It's an extremely painful condition and very difficult and expensive to treat. The only blessing here is that your dog was spared a great deal of suffering and took a difficult decision out of your hands. The only way to know for certain what happened is a full postmortem exam if the blood work doesn't confirm pancreatitis.
Avatar f tn I just have to ask about my female chow mix, 14 years old. I am wondering for the signs to put her down, so she will avoid misery. Now, I do know if a dog won't eat, or if a dog "checks out," or has terminal illness, the dog is put down. We're seniors, enjoy dogs, we know the drill. But I don't know so much about just a plain old dog. She's the first to be the way she is. All the others showed the signs I said.
203342 tn?1328740807 I also don't think he sees or hears as well as he used to. He's overweight which seems to partly go with the Cushings. We have him on a low-fat diet and it doesn't seem to help much. I try to walk him but he tires out easily and I wind up having to carry him home because he'll sit down and refuse to walk anymore! And just last night he was breathing funny. At first he was panting really hard for a long time. I kept checking the AC and turning it on more.
Avatar n tn For those who don't know PCOS can have stages like diabetes-you DON'T have diabetes but it messes w/your insulin levels which messes with the estrogen and causes you to produce too much testosterone. woo that was textbooky huh...anyway they would put you on metformin or a pill like it and make all your hormone levels balanced. Basicly your estrogen would be very low and testosterone very high.
