Hello there. I am happy to help you this evening. Unfortunately at this time there is not an oral treatment for diabetes in dogs. Diabetes is well controlled with insulin by injection. Some forms of insulin can be given just once daily and with proper diet diabetes can be well controlled. There has been research into oral treatment but nothing successful at this time.

I hope this helps and I hope this makes sense. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions or concerns. I would be happy to help. Please do not forget to rate my response so I receive credit for my time. Thank you!
