Dear Linda,

Your veterinarian will determine what type of insulin is best for your dog. Your veterinarian will use the one he is most comfortable with and that will help in getting his patient regulated faster. DIA-IONX is usually given along with insulin. I would suggest you try DIA-IONX because it helps to control the symptoms of diabetes and it's therapeutic mineral base helps activate the enzyme systems in the body that help with healing. Some owners have told us it has helped stabilize the blood glucose levels. In addition I like to give probiotics and Omega 3,6,9 daily. DIA-IONX will help the body better utilize the other supplements for a synergistic response. In addition make sure that you offer sufficient water free of chlorine and free of fluoride.

A regular exercise schedule is also helpful in moving glucose from the blood and into the muscles which will reduce the blood glucose. Your veterinarian will probably recommend a low carbohydrate diet that is high in fiber.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char www.vetionx.com
