A. Treatments do vary from animal to animal but largely the treatment is similar to that of humans, regular insulin injections, diet control and exercise.
Many diabetic dog owners are fearful at administering insulin injections at first but soon get used to this and discover diet control to be a lot more tricky.
Insulin is administered under the skin by injection, usually after the animal has eaten. The insulin dose given must be sufficient to cope with everything the animal eats, which is why diet control is so important; animals that get sneaky treats or are fed foods they should not, often fair badly
Regular exercise is also important as this helps with digestion.
