Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that your dog has symptoms of diabetes. She will need an exam sooner than later to ensure that something really bad like diabetic ketoacidosis befalls her. High fiber is a great start to help her control her blood sugar, but most dogs need insulin as well.
I also can understand that you have financial concerns. Do you have a local humane society near you? They often have a full service veterinary hospital open to the public that is usually less expensive than general practices. You also can consider Care Credit. This is a health care credit card that you can use for yourself and your pets. Lastly, the ASPCA has an entire page dedicated to folks who want to help others with their vet bills. Check that page out at https://www.aspca.org/about-us/faq/financial-help-my-vet-bills.
Best regards, ***** ***** this answer helps you.
Feel free to contact me if you have any more questions.
