Since the beginning of May, I have had a recurring Urinary Tract Infection (burning sensation when I urinate), a high temperature and a general feeling of being unwell. I wake up two or three times during the night, soaked with sweat. I went to see my GP and traces of blood and protein were found in my urine. The doctor prescribed a 7-day course of Amoxicillin 250mg and although these seemed to help bring my temperature down, I was still experiencing discomfort when passing water.

    We learned that scrambled eggs are good for your dog and wont run his sugar up. Most dogs like them . When our dog acted like she didnt want any breakfast often the eggs would do the trick. Dogs love chicken too and they will often eat it even if they dont want any other food. You can not let a diabetic dog miss meals for fear of a drastic blood sugar drop which could quickly kill him . Like humans when the dog eats a good meal his sugar will jump up. We had a regular routine of letting her eat and give her a shot. We never gave the shot until she ate. good luck with your pets.

    Does anyone know of a sauce or wet food that is good for diabetic dogs? If I mix in something they tend to eat the whole bowl- if I don't they just pick at it which makes it risky to give them their insulin shots. Hebrew International all beef hotdogs
    no fillers in these.

    Break open a Fish Oil Capsule, add some warm water and stir
    Non fat plain yogurt
    I cooked some chicken or turkey in the crock pot, skim off the fat, put the meat & broth in fridge in a microwavable dish, warm up & pour over food. I used to cook a big pot full and freeze it, made it easier.
    Carolina Brand makes ground turkey in 1lb tubes, these came in handy.
    Hope this helps
