Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with this .Unfortunately when a dog becomes diabetic they are truly insulin dependent. Their body can no longer make insulin. So it is imperative for him to take insulin and to eat a diet prescribed by your vet. The weight loss indicates that your dog may be coming ketotic. This is a very serious metabolic condition and it is life threatening. Feeding raw organic meat will not fix diabetes in a dog.
I do understand completely your situation with not being able to afford the proper treatment. It is a tough situation but if you are unable to afford the correct treatment for this condition then your pet would be much better off if you let him go peacefully. Any attempts you make at home to treat this are unfortunately going to fail and just result in more misery for your dog. I do hope this helps you and I am available for follow up questions as I check my computer each night. Most Sincerely, DRB
