How to Treat a Dog Who Has Diabetes

There are a multitude of people all over the world that are afflicted with diabetes. But did you ever stop to think that many dogs of different dog breeds can be afflicted with this pancreatic disease? It's probably hard to phantom that it happens to dogs, but the reality is, that it does. They can get the exact same type as we humans can get and that is Type II or what is called adult onset diabetes. Generally most dogs who have it will be diagnosed with it around five years old or older. The warning signs of this disease in dogs would be unusual weight loss, they are eating and drinking more food and water and they will have to urinate more often. A lot of people will go with traditional medical treatment when they discover their dog is a diabetic whereas others will go with a more natural approach that is demonstrated here.

You should try feeding your dog food that is rich in fiber. The reason for this is that foods with lots of fiber will be processed slower by the body and this will then help lower the sugar production more than other kinds of foods. This helps your dog to be able to control his sugar levels in a natural manner.

Try not to feed your dog anything in between his regular meals and never feed him scraps from the table if he's diabetic. When your dog is a diabetic everything he eats needs to be monitored very closely so you need to keep him away from sugars and other foods that most diabetics shouldn't consume in the first place.

You can mix in 2 or 3 drops of vinegar, apple cider to be specific, into the water dish each time you go to fill it up with fresh water. This type of vinegar helps the body to control production of it's insulin and also helps to move any medicines through the body quicker as well.

Take some cinnamon and put a little on your dog's food. Use just a very thin layer over it, because your dog might smell it and not want to eat his food. Cinnamon is a great agent to replace insulin in the dog's blood for a temporary time and will help keep your dog's system working better.

Adding one to two tablespoons of grapefruit juice to his water will help those dogs who may start becoming overweight due to their diabetes. It is also a very good way to boost the dog's metabolism.

Make up some herbal teas by combining herbs and herbal extracts with water and let your dog drink this during the day instead of always just having plain water to drink. There are a lot of herbs out there that can actually help the body regulate the sugar in your dog's blood. Some of those herbs that can help are gurmar, turmeric and bjak.

If your dog's diabetes is bad enough for injections of insulin, it's a good idea to feed him right before you give him his shot. By doing this the food that circulates through his body will help the medicine circulate better. Also it's important to note that if you happen to have other dogs, make sure to feed them all at the same time so your dog with diabetes won't be able to eat their foods.

Final note: Never do any kind of treatment on your dog or make any changes to his treatment before you get the advice of his vet.
