diabetic dog
Brought our 15 yr old min-pin cross, Tess, to the vet last August after noticing she was losing weight & wasn't her usual 'bossy' self!  She was diagnosed with diabetes. Spent a week or two having the vet check her blood sugar at various times of the day. The vet requested we administer 2 injections a day of 6 ml canine insulin. We've followed this regimen faithfully ever since. After a month or so, she was so much better. Lately we have noticed she drinks & drinks tons of water!  She's been such a good girl we just want to make sure she's okay!  Thanks for any help!

I don't know anything about canine diabetes, but I would think if shes improved, the water drinking would have too.  Click on Forums on top of this page, and scroll down to Pets, click on Ask a Vet.  Maybe they can give you more info, good luck.

Recently my 8 year old Pomeranian was diagnosed with Diabetes. Broke my heart. How ironic too since It came and got me one time when my  mom went into a Diabetic Coma..
anyway, Glad to hear she is doing well!
We feed skipper a special W/D Diet and he has 3.5 units of insulin 3times a day. At 7am-3pm and 11pm. Quite a handful, but we love that dog so much.
Make sure she drinks lots of water, goes to the bathroom enough, doesnt sleep all the time, and gets lots of exercise!
Best of luck!
