Hi Dr. Char,
I feed our Cockapoo Science Diet Light, which is higher fiber and lower fat content. It is off the shelf, not a prescription dog food. I try to stay away from those, due to cost. I feed him twice a day, and then give insulin 1/2 hour after he eats.
He gets up every night to go outside...probably from high fiber. Miss those nights when he slept all night.
My vet just tells me to give him a higher fiber food, but did not specify which type. Again, he usually is well regulated, just by negative urine glucose tests. More recently, he has had some glucose in urine. I just give a bit more insulin if he is positive.
I have been doing more research of diabetes in dogs.......just trying to keep him as healthy as possible. There is so much information out there, it gets confusing at times.
I am an RN by the way.
Thank you for your time. It is appreciated. I was just wondering if some of these supplements do truly help.
