Keep in mind that dogs have a shorter intestinal tract. They also don't chew their food as much as we do. Both of these factors affect food breakdown and the amount of nutrients being absorbed. Make sure you chop or grind the vegetables up really well. article: http://turtlewoman.hubpages.com/hub/H... tip 2 - Poultry, Meats, and Fish Are Excellent Sources of Protein Use protein sources that you would use in your regular diet, but stay away from bean sources of protein such as soy, as well as pork, as they can be difficult for your dog to digest. Choose poultry, and red meats such as beef, lamb, venison or even buffalo. article: How to Find Good Protein Sources for Dogs | eHow.com http://www.ehow.com/how_2212985_find-... tip 3 -make sure your dog gets enough calcium Calcium is generally one of the deficiency concerns when feeding a homemade dog food recipe diet.

TIP 8 - FEED YOUR DOG RAW BONES Perhaps you have heard that there are several different types of bones you should never feed your dog. There are a few, but typically any bone in raw form is going to be safe for your dog. Much to most owner's amazement and initial disbelief this includes chicken bones, turkey bones, lamb bones and even oxtails, all fed in a natural raw state. In addition whole fish, including the head, can also be fed to dogs on raw food diets. These bones are known as the soft bones and the dog will actually chew and eat the bone, bone marrow and the attached meat. The only bones to avoid are those that that break into shards. This only happens when they have had their nutrients depleted from heat. article: http://julieannamos.hubpages.com/hub/...

The True Cost Of Having A Diabetic Dog – Revisited

A reader commented on this post about The True Cost of Having a Diabetic Dog. After reading the article I thought I should make a few updates. It has been over a year and a half since I wrote that article, a lot has changed and I’ve learned a lot. Diabetes will be different for every dog. There are so many variables. Food, insulin production, metabolism, weight, etc… It is about finding the right combination of food, insulin, and exercise that works for your dog. Plus getting them down to the right weight. When I posted The True Cost of Having a Diabetic Dog Bender was overweight and my costs was roughly this for TWO months. 2 bag of W/D food 30lbs – $124 4 Vetsulin 10ml – $100 ($25/each) 124 needles – $14.26 (11.5 cents each) 10 testing strips – $10 ($1 each) Total: Roughly $250 for TWO months. As I became more aware of Bender’s diabetes and researched it I found ways to improve Bender’s diabetic regiment and cut costs without sacrificing. I learned that exercise plays a major role in managing diabetes. And also getting your dog down to a healthy weight. I learned that Hill’s Science Diet W/D was not the best food for diabetics (Many posts about it here). But at Continue reading >>

    Had a newly diagnosed patient today who had a script for the Novolin 70/30 pens, first time ever getting insulin. 160 dollars or so, no insurance. Customer can't afford that. Call the doctor to switch to a cheaper alternative, not available of course. I do speak to a case manager (I don't know what this is?) whose reply is, "He can use a credit card." Well thank you for that keen insight Sherlock.
    I wasn't comfortable recommending an OTC insulin to a newly diagnosed diabetic who had no experience monitoring blood sugar or giving himself injections. I don't know, I would love to hear what others have done in this situation? By far my least favorite part of retail is seeing people go untreated. My pharmacist ended up calling the doctor back, with similarly fantastic results. Not sure exactly what was said, but the patient ended up leaving with nothing, but I think was going to go see his doctor again about this situation. Hopefully it works out.

    Click to expand... Wonder how high his a1c was that they went straight to SC insulin (unless he was a newly dx'd type 1). Makes me wonder, given the amount of care they seem to be showing, whether this was appropriate in the first place.
    But anyway, that aside, you can technically work out a regular insulin regimen for him (that seems to have worked for >50 years for lots of people), but throw in the test strips and this guy is sinking fast.
    Yeah i dunno =/

Sugar Under a Microscope Sugar is the generalized name for sweet, short-chain, soluble carbohydrates, many of which are used in food. They are carbohydrates, composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. There are various types of sugar derived from different sources. Simple sugars are called monosaccharides and include glucose (also known as dextrose), fructose and galactose. The table or granulated sugar most customarily used as food is sucrose, a disaccharide. (In the body, sucrose hydrolyses into fructose and glucose.) Other disaccharides include maltose and lactose. Longer chains of sugars are called oligosaccharides. Chemically-different substances may also have a sweet taste, but are not classified as sugars. Some are used as lower-calorie food substitutes for sugar described as artificial sweeteners. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sugar

Lilly Insulin Prices Under Microscope

INDIANAPOLIS — Over the past 20 years, while the price of a gallon of milk climbed 23 percent and the sticker on a Dodge Caravan minivan rose 21 percent, the list price of the insulin Humalog, made by Eli Lilly and Co., shot up 1,157 percent. Other Lilly insulins saw hefty price increases, too, including Humulin, on the market since 1982. It has seen price increases totaling nearly 800 percent over the last two decades. The soaring prices at Indianapolis-based Lilly — and two other insulin makers, whose prices are climbing at similar rates — are sending sticker shock through the diabetes community. In recent months, patients have filed lawsuits and called for congressional investigations, and now they’re planning a demonstration next month in front of Lilly’s headquarters on South Delaware Street. The actions are casting a bright glare on Lilly’s oldest and perhaps most famous franchise. The company was the first to mass produce insulin in the 1920s, a move that allowed it to attract scientists and make other breakthroughs in fields from cancer to depression.

    Finding low cost Insulin at Wal Mart!

    I was looking for low cost insulin this week. We usually go through Medco, but there prices are as much as my rent it! I can't afford both! I found this website that explains all the details of what you can do to locate a Wal Mart in your area that has Novolin 75/30 insulin for as low as 16.95. Some places want more, like ours does, but its better then paying 400.00 for 3 viles. Passing this along to those who are looking to and were not aware of this like I was not. :) Now on my March 7th Dr. appointment I can have him, if he wil, write a prescription for this.

Humalog Kwikpen Price

Humalog Kwikpen is a portable insulin device given to people who have type 2 diabetes. Containing insulin lispro, Humalog Kwikpen is manufactured by Eli Lilly and Company Limited. Other active ingredients of this medicine are glycerol, zinc oxide, m-cresol, hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide. Humalog Kwikpen is prescribed specifically to provide insulin for people with diabetes. Insulin is a hormone that helps the body in properly using the sugar found in the blood. It particularly helps prevent blood sugar from increasing to dangerous levels. People with diabetes don’t produce enough insulin in their bodies, and this is why insulin devices like Humalog Kwikpen are prescribed to them. The amount of insulin given to a patient will depend on the diagnosis of a physician, who may need regular measurement of the patient’s blood sugar levels. At times, the amount of Humalog may be changed depending on factors like changes to the diet, changes to the patient’s health, changes in physical activity, or use of another insulin type. Humalog Kwikpen Cost Information Humalog Kwikpen prices vary depending on the store that retails it. A carton of Humalog that contains five kwikpens ca Continue reading >>

    but I will say that 350 is pretty high. (I am basing this on my good friend who is diabetic---with a diabetic cat). My friend's blood sugar is so high that she is not a candidate for oral insulin and I would guess that your cat may be in that category as well.
    On edit: what made you test the cat's blood sugar, and why did you have the instruments to do it?

  2. REP

    Stewart was walking on his hocks, which is a classic sign of neuropathy. I'm diabetic (extremely bad reaction to steroids, and I'm on oral meds) so I have a glucometer.
    Cats are able to take oral meds; they don't get insulin-dependent diabetes. Oral meds are not insulin; the drug class I mentioned increases the body's insulin production. Other types of oral hypoglycemic agents improve the body's response to insulin (these are not appropriate for cats - or me - as they are nephrotoxic) or suppress how much glucose the liver releases (I don't think these are used in cats).

  3. Curmudgeoness

    My friend actually gives her cat her insulin, since the amount is so tiny for a cat. I figured that you might be diabetic since you had the knowledge and ability to check the cat. If you are on oral meds, that wouldn't work. Oh well. It was worth a try.
