Our vet, Dr. Char recommends that you can try our Dia-Ionx. Dia-IonX does NOT replace insulin shots, however some owners are able to greatly decrease the amount of insulin with time with the supervision of their vet, so yes, it can help in getting his glucose down.

We want to share with some additional information in regards to our product to help guide you in making the best decision for your dog.

Dia-IonX was designed to help with the symptoms of diabetes. It helps the body to better utilize diet and supplements better for a synergistic effect for a faster response. Dia-IonX also contains homeopathics that benefit the kidneys.

Other dietary restrictions, for diabetic pets, must also be taken into consideration such as; feeding only diabetes-approved food and treats. To optimize health, give enzymes with each meal, add a MSM, Vitamin C, probiotic, and a fish oil.

I included a blog, that I wrote, which discusses the benefits of Fish Oil too, I hope you find this informational. :-)

Another way to give Dia-IonX:

Dia-IonX can be added to your dog's food (just avoid using stainless steel, metal bowls or spoons when using our oral products, ceramic, glass or plastic are best). Mixing it in with his wet-moist food should be an easy way to insure he is getting the daily dosage amount. You can split the dosage amount too, giving him 1/2 in the morning and 1/2 in the evening with his meals.

Provide your dog with chemical-free, purified water too.

Exercise helps to move glucose from the blood stream into the muscles helping to regulate the blood sugar levels. Hopefully you can provide him with a daily walk, and play time. Having a consistent schedule is necessary in good regulation.

I wanted to include one more blog for you that I wrote. It is about our pets and diabetes, it has some great tips that I hope you find helpful.

We hope you can try these tips and suggestions to help get your dog's diabetes under control. Please feel free to contact us anytime with questions or concerns.

All the best,

Victoria Vet Coordinator and Product Specialist
