Diabetic Ketoacidosis In Dogs: Symptoms, Causes, & Treatments

Diabetic ketoacidosis in dogs, sometimes shortened to DKA, is a deadly medical emergency that happens when there is not enough insulin in the body to regulate levels of blood sugar known as glucose. It is a complication of diabetes mellitus that requires immediate medical treatment before it becomes fatal. When insulin levels drop, the body can’t use glucose properly, so glucose builds up in the blood while the liver produces ketone bodies to act as an emergency fuel source. When ketone bodies are broken down, they cause the body’s pH balance to shift and become more acidic. Dogs can’t maintain their fluid and electrolyte balance, which results in deadly symptoms. If your dog shows signs of diabetic ketoacidosis, especially if they have been diagnosed with diabetes, it is important that you see an emergency veterinarian right away for treatment. Here is what you should know about the symptoms, causes, and treatments for diabetic ketoacidosis in dogs.

    So I'm based in the UK and recently stumbled across Grenade Carb Killa protein bars, and saw they had 1.5g of impact carbs. Due to the fact it was very late at night and I got excited I didn't check the back of the box. Anway the nutrition reads as:
    Per 60g Bar
    Calories - 214 Fat - 7.9g Carbohydrates - 13.5g Of which are sugars - 1.4g Of which are polyols - 10.6g Fibre - 6.7g Protein - 23.2g Salt - 0.45g
    Now I have tried to find the answer myself but seem to be finding different answers. Is it true I do Fibre - Carbohydrate to find the net carbs?
    Basically what I am asking is, is one bar 6.8 carbs or is it 13.5?
    I am trying to keep under 20g per day, so if it's 13.5 I'll probably give them to a friend.
    Thanks for the help, sorry if it's confusing!
