    this is such a great help… l made mistake i used to give my dog during a 12h break a small snack, like bone etc… can anyone drop me a line what food you are giving to your dog? I have dog food for diabetic dogs and l am giving her boiled eggs and yogurt with 0’1 fat as well as broccoli, spinach and green salad. All that in one meal… she has enough enough exercise since we are both very hyperactive. Any advice would help…

    If diabetes in humans can be reversed, why not in dogs?

    Is it possible to reverse diabetes in a dog the way it is possible to reverse diabetes in a human? with food dietary changes


    Is it strictly 12 hours or is 10 hours OK? I feed my dog breakfast at 7 AM and then dinner at 5 PM but we just got confirmation from the vet that he has diabetes so if that has to change I can make that change

    SICK CAT! IMMEDIATE HELP! My cat has been acting weird recently. She has been avoiding her food. There also seems to be patched of hair missing in various parts of her body and it also seems to be spreading. My cat is a new mother and she gave birth to her kittens about 10 days ago. There also seems to be patches of hair missing around her breasts but only through the ones from which the kittens used to suck milk. I am pretty scared if this might be some fungul infection. I am terrified. I need someone who can explain this phenomenon if they have experience with cats. HELP.

    What do I do if we feed our lab with 10 units of insulin. Then about 30min after it’s 490mgs. Do I inject more insulin ?

    My dog just got on vetsulin. I wasn’t told what times to give it to him though. I’m doing some research and people are saying every 12 hours. So I gave it to him tonight at 6pm. So, that means I give it to him at 6am & then 6pm tomorrow night? Any advice helps! Thank you 🙂

    Our dog was just diagnosed and it has been a very emotional experience but thankfully these videos are helping me process and prepare for what's needed.

    Lovely Video clip! Sorry for butting in, I would love your initial thoughts. Have you heard about – Zeyames Wonliver Breakthrough (just google it)? It is an awesome one off product for discovering the simple way to end diabetic nerve pain and neuropathy minus the hard work. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my work buddy after a lifetime of fighting got excellent results with it.
