We have a male Brittany who is a purebred and 2 yrs old. He was fine at 6 weeks, and then he got sick. The vet had a difficult time diagnosing the problem. After many tests, the vet checked Dashâ€™s blood sugar and diabetes was diagnosed. Itâ€™s possible the flea/tic powder the vet put on him at 7 week caused his pancreas to quit working. The MRI scan showed a healthy pancreas (not black), which surprised the vet.
Dash was on 15 units of insulin 2x/day. I started him on Dia-IonX about 1-1/2 years ago, and after about 6 months we were able to slowly decrease his insulin to 10 units 2x/day. He takes 30 drops of Dia-IonX 2x/day. He is about 44 lbs.
Dash is very energetic and playful. I would like to get him off of the insulin. Can we slowly reduce the insulin and will his body automatically adjust? The insulin plus Dia-IonX is quite expensive. We check his glucose levels periodically at the vet's using blood tests. The vet is not that supportive of Dia-IonX.
