ABOUT TODAYS VIDEO: How To Keep Your Diabetic Dog Healthy
More and more in this age of processed dog food and over medication, our dogs are falling prey to dog diabetes symptoms, where insulin is not being produced in enough quantities to regulate blood sugar levels in the body.
So How Do I Know If My Dog Has Diabetes?
At this time, there is no standard classification of diabetes in dogs. Commonly used terms are:
Insulin deficiency diabetes or primary diabetes, which refers to the destruction of the beta cells of the pancreas and their inability to produce insulin.
Insulin resistance diabetes or secondary diabetes, which describes the resistance to insulin caused by other medical conditions or by hormonal drugs.
So what are the symptoms of a Dog with Diabetes?
Normally there is a steady onset of the disease over several weeks, and it may go unnoticed for a while.
The main symptoms of diabetes in dogs are:
1: Excessive water consumption
2: Frequent and/or excessive urination
3: Possible house “accidents”
4:Greater than average appetite (with either weight loss or maintenance of current weight
6: Possible vomiting
7: Sticky urine
8: Sugar smelling breath
9: Cloudy eyes or Cataracts.
The official cause of diabetes is said to be unknown, with contributing factors being obesity, genetics, vaccine and steroid side effects and in some cases pancreatitis can lead to diabetes.
However from my own research over the years, it's crystal clear that poor diet is the cause of a dogs diabetes in the vast majority of cases, exacerbated by the use of steroid medications.
How can I treat my dog’s diabetes naturally?
First let's talk about the natural alternative to insulin injections. There's a product call Primalix Blood Sugar Balance. It's an excellent natural herbal alternative meant to REPLACE insulin injections.
If your dog was just diagnosed and not on insulin yet, and you want an alternative, simply start the drops according to the instructions.
If your dog is already using insulin and you want to get them off insulin and onto this natural alternative, you'll want to transition your dog over to the drops gradually.
Alongside the Primalix Blood Sugar Balance drops you'll want to give your dog Ocu Glo for their eyes health which is very important. Your dogs eyes will suffer from a diabetic condition, becoming cloudy and eventually cataracts form over the cornea of your dogs eyes and they go blind. This can happen within the first year of becoming diabetic. Ocu Glo is vital to keep your dogs eyes functioning and prevent blindness.
Give your dogs pancreas as much support as possible as it's now inflamed with the potential for acute pancreatitis to be a factor. Give your dog some preferably organic pancreas gland added to their diet for much needed support. The dosage for feeding Pancreas Glandular 500mg capsules is a 1/2 capsule for every 20 pounds of your dogs weight daily.

In this video I'll guide you on how to keep your diabetic dog, healthy with a natural treatment, the symptoms of dog, diabetes and the diet, a diabetic dog must be on., Hi, I'm, Dan, Scott, canine nutrition and home remedy specialist.
And if you're new here, hit the subscribe button below to stay in touch with all the latest videos that I do and feel free to comment or ask questions, below., Your, dog's been diagnosed with diabetes, or you suspect, diabetes as your dog is drinking lots and peeing lots, which is a big sign.
They may have diabetes and you're now worried and looking for what to do next.
I'm going to guide you through what to do to care for your diabetic dog.
And looking at all the options, available.
First, let's, look at the condition, how it came about.
And why more and more in this age of processed dog, food and over-medication, our dogs are falling prey to dog, diabetes, symptoms, a condition, well known to people where insulin is not being produced in enough quantities to regulate blood, sugar levels in the body.
How do I know if my dog has diabetes? At, this time, there's, no standard classification of diabetes in dogs.
Commonly used terms are insulin deficiency diabetes or primary diabetes, which refers to the destruction of the beta cells of the pancreas and their inability to produce insulin.
Insulin resistance diabetes or secondary diabetes, which describes the resistance to insulin caused by other medical conditions or by hormonal drugs.
There are two classifications of diabetes, type 1 diabetes, where the lack of insulin production is the most common form as the pancreas does not produce enough insulin to meet the demand.
Therefore extra insulin is needed and type 2 diabetes.
Whereby there is no normal reaction to the insulin being produced.
What are the symptoms of a dog with diabetes? Normally? There is a steady onset of diabetes over several weeks.
And it may go unnoticed for a while.
The main symptoms are excessive water consumption, which is polydipsia, frequent and or excessive urination polyuria, possible house, accidents, greater than average appetite polyhagya, with either weight loss or maintenance of current weight, fatigue, possible, vomiting, sticky, urine, sugar, smelling breath and cloudy eyes or cataracts.
It's possible that canine diabetes may not be noticed until your dog has symptoms of ketosis or ketoacidosis.
And when finally diagnosed about 40% of dogs have elevated ketone levels and some dogs are already in diabetic ketoacidosis.
When first treated for a diabetic condition, most dogs tend to suffer from insulin resistance.
And while vets will say, it's, not curable, I have experiential knowledge of dogs recovering.
Their health enough to come off the insulin injections or have been able to use a natural insulin alternative.
The official cause of diabetes is said to be unknown with contributing factors being obesity, genetics, vaccine and steroid side effects.
And in some cases, pancreatitis can lead to diabetes.
However from my own research over the years, it's crystal clear that poor diet is the cause of a dogs diabetes in the vast majority of cases and exacerbated by the use of steroid medications.
Dogs on a kibble diet have been consuming too many refined carbohydrates and too much sugar for too long.
And their pancreas is now damaged or worn out and cannot produce insulin in enough quantity or at all to cope with the daily levels of saturated blood, sugar.
Returning, a dog to non-diabetic status depends on the amount of damage the pancreatic insulin-producing, beta cells have sustained.
A dog's digestive process begins with incoming food being broken down into its constituent parts and glucose.
A simple sugar, is one part of that process.
The pancreas, releases insulin to direct the glucose to the body cells via the bloodstream.
And if not enough insulin is being produced or the pancreas is not able to produce insulin.
The glucose has nowhere to go, which makes the blood sugar levels rise dramatically resulting in hypoglycemia and related health.
Good news is that canine diabetes is flexible as many diabetic dogs lead long healthy lives.
If they follow a few careful directions.
How can I treat my dog's diabetes, naturally? With, this in mind here's, how you can manage your dog's, diabetic condition using natural alternatives to insulin supplements.
And the all-important diet.
First let's, talk about the natural alternatives to insulin injections.
There's, a product called Primalex, Blood, Sugar, Balance., It's, an excellent, natural, herbal alternative meant to replace insulin injections.
And these functional food drops will take the place of vet prescribed insulin injections, but make sure not to use them combined with insulin at full dosage.
Your dog was just diagnosed and not on insulin yet.
And you want an alternative, simply start the drops according to the instructions.
Your dog is already using insulin.
And you want to get them off insulin and onto this natural alternative, you'll want to transition your dog over to the drops gradually.
The product manufacturers provide directions on how to do this.
Here's the process, the manufacturer recommends in order to transition your dog from insulin injections to blood sugar balance.
Food, drops., There are two ways to monitor a dog's transition from insulin to primalix blood, sugar, balance., The, first method, which is preferred is through frequent veterinary testing and calibration of blood.
Sugar levels as medicines are adjusted.
This is not possible.
The other method is through monitoring, observation and use of home.
Insulin test strips.
Even, then it's, mostly guesswork and knowing your dog's usual.
The reason, we're always repeating that each dog is different.
And the way medicine affects them is because it's true.
Watch your dog for signs of both hypo and hyperglycemia.
An owner can increase blood sugar quickly by feeding any kind of sugar.
Gymena Sylvestra can counteract the sugar's action on the pancreas and lower blood.
Sugar, levels., Give, 100 milligrams per 10 pounds up to four times in a day.
And then stop immediately when symptoms stop.
If behavioral changes are observed.
The bigger problem is in the interpretation of these changes and avoiding over correcting.
This brings us back to the vet.
Some professional help should be considered.
Even if it's just testing before, once during the transition, and after.
Basically, if one wants to transition over to a holistic approach, they should slowly decrease the insulin as they start to introduce the primalex blood, sugar balance, while monitoring and frequent testing., And I'll, leave a link to the product in the description, below.
Next, let's, talk about supplements.
Alongside, the primalix blood, sugar balance drops you'll want to give your dog Ocuglow for their eyes health, which is very important.
Your dog's eyes will suffer from a diabetic condition, becoming cloudy and eventually cataracts form over the cornea of the dog's eyes and they'll go blind.
This can happen within the first year of becoming diabetic.
Ocuglow is vital to keep your dog's eyes functioning and prevent blindness.
Also want to give your dog's pancreas as much support as possible as it's now inflamed with the potential for acute pancreatitis to be a factor.
Give your dog, some preferably, organic pancreas, gland, added to their diet for much needed support.
The dosage for feeding pancreas, glandular, 500 milligram capsules is a half capsule for every 20 pounds of your dog's.
Weight, daily., Again, I'll, leave a link to the products in the description, below.
Another, great supplement I use daily and would not be without is a freeze-dried greens, powder called Green Vibrance from Vibrant Health., This, freeze-dried, supergreens, product.
I've been using for 20 years.
And from my research over the years is the best available in the world.
These, super greens, are nature's powerhouse.
Vitamin, antioxidant, immune, skeletal, liver, enzyme and probiotic.
Support., And, supergreens are freeze-dried greens that are a nutritionally valuable food supplement that contains a huge variety of beneficial plant-based.
They retain their nutritive value and their super simple, quick and easy to add to your dog's meals, and your dog's overall health gets to greatly benefit.
There are many choices of super greens on the market and not all created equal, especially the ones specific to dogs, which for my research over the last 11 years, means overpriced for a small ingredients, list.
Green, vibrance from vibrant health began in 1992 and has continued to update and refine its ingredient list ever since.
And they use full disclosure labeling and packing the best, most diverse ingredient range available.
They, provide all known nutrients with greens, vitamins, minerals, plant proteins and enzymes, plus 25 billion cfu of probiotics from 12 strains that help feed the good flora in your dog's digestive system.
So, essentially your dog gets a one-stop solution.
Instead of buying a dozen individual products, plus probiotics.
You can get one product with them all in for a fraction of the overall cost.
And with the result that can lead to the following.
Your dog will get increased energy, increased endurance, greater clarity of mind, stronger, immune system, stronger, heart, stronger blood vessels and circulation, reduced blood.
Pressure, better skin, health, better kidney, function, better blood, cleansing, greater well-being, better focus, decreased joint ache and decreased joint and muscle.
Pain, better sleep, decreased arthritis, pain, better digestion and greater elimination of excess waste from the body and urinary tract.
The tub comes with a scoop that you fill to level for an average human adult of 150 pounds.
So adjust by your dog's weight., For, example, a 25 pound dog would just get one-sixth of a scoop, a 50-pound dog.
A third of a scoop, a 100 pound dog would get around about two-thirds of the scoop.
If you have a small dog like an eight pound, chihuahua for example, simply add a larger pinch by hand.
You can experiment with different ways to add the greens to your dog's meal.
You feed kibbles, try adding the greens to a little yogurt or kefir and stir in, add to the meals and generally dogs love kefir or yogurt.
Another way is to add the greens to a little milk in a container, give it a shake and just pour over the kibble.
Again, dogs, generally love milk., Feed, the super greens, daily, they're safe and with no known side, effects, and keep in the freezer for long-term freshness.
This really is a powerhouse.
Superfood addition to your dog's, current diet that will benefit them greatly in recuperating from canine diabetes.
Now, for the all-important diet, part., I'll say, this slowly, your dog must switch to a new diet., Why? Because, the old diet, the kibble-only diet is full of carbohydrates and sugar, which over the years has led to the diabetic condition your dog.
I will caution that for either traditional insulin or the natural alternative.
I've discussed to work effectively.
You must give your dog, a diet suited to the diabetic condition and plenty of exercise.
Your dog will require a low carbohydrate, high protein diet.
There's, no getting around the fact that kibble is not going to work for a diabetic dog, it's simply too high in carbohydrates, which turn to sugar the instant.
They hit your dog's digestive system.
You'll also have to avoid all treats and any other foods high in carbohydrates, such as corn, any grains such as wheat or rice and all sugars, even fruit., For, a diet alternative to your dog's regular kibble, diet, I recommend.
My book, How, To, Feed, Your, Dog Better, which also contains the full A to Z of feeding your dog, a healthier kibble, diet, a home-cooked, food diet and a raw food, diet.
You'll want to choose either to home cook.
Your dog's food, buy in a diabetes, ready commercial alternative or prepare a homemade raw food diet or buying a pre-made commercial raw, food diet, alternative., For, optimum success with healing, your dog's diabetes, remember.
You cannot keep your dog on a regular, kibble-only diet, or any of those vet prescription diets, regardless of what your vet tells you.
They, only make the condition worse and your dog blind inside 12 months.
You definitely must avoid all vaccines and chemical flea and tick, worm and heart products.
You want the natural and effective alternatives, see a link to my book, Home Remedies, For Dogs in the description, below.
And, I'll, leave a link to a video all about how to feed your dog better in the description, below.
Also, please note that if your dog is already taking insulin, you'll want to collaborate with your vet, have a plan up and running of regular injections and know, your dog's blood, sugar levels by testing.
All this you can do at home, but and I repeat, do not use a prescription diet.
No matter how hard the vet pushes you.
Go with what I recommended, home prepared cooked food or raw foods.
Just as long as they are low in carbohydrates.
So, if you're cooking the food, leave out the grains and the other carbohydrates in the recipes for your diabetic dog.
Transition over to the natural drops from the insulin by following the product manufacturer's guidelines, stick to a well-organized timetable of regular meals and supplementation to allow nutrients to correspond with peak.
Insulin levels, reducing the chances of sugar, swings.
A, low carbohydrate, high protein diet is necessary for dogs with diabetes, Avoid foods and dog treats that are high in glucose and give your dog, plenty of regular exercise., I know, this may be a lot to take in right now.
But your dog is in a delicate state and really needs you to do your best for them.
You follow the advice I've given and there's, no other acute health condition.
Complicating things, you'll, get your dog's blood glucose levels down to 100, keep it steady.
And in time, hopefully your dog system will heal and return to normal, while cleaning up other, chronic health conditions and add some quality years to your dog's life.
