Diabetes

Hello everyone,
I have a 12yr old min pin/chi mix named Ruby who was diagnosed with diabetes 8 or 9 months ago. She had the start of cataracts previous to diagnosis, but now they're full blown, making her blind. She gets around ok but, I can tell my poor girl is getting more & more anxious... Ruby goes to the vet on a regular basis anyway, but itd be nice if I could help her out more w the anxiety. I'd like to try to stick with a more natural approach if possible.. Thanks in advance!

A natural approach is great if it works. Work with your Vet, some level of medication may be what is best for her. Not being able to see is an anxiety producer, some dogs just deal with it better than others. Keeping her sugar levels as consistent as possible is also very important.

I would read uo on diabetic diets. Secret is to keep blood sugars stable. Some foods are low GI and slow release. These are great for keeping levels steady. Small often meals are another way to help. If not on insulin must be pre diabetic (type2) so reading up on suitable diabetic diet will help. Re. Blindness. Ive found routine and keeping furniture in same place very helpful. Gorgeous dog. Love minpins?
