Customer: Hi. My dog is diabetic. Has been very sick for days - will not eat and vomits up the water she drinks. I had her treated for two days at vet and actually came home worse. Apparently her pancreas is inflammed. She is drinking Pedialyte and this helps her. Although she is still very weak. Her sugar level has been high but I fear giving her insulin when she is not eating
. If she is drinking Pedialyte, does this give her enough of what she needs to give the Insulin - or do I need to wait until she consumes food? ***** *****
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: She has mammary gland tumors
and there is a chance the cancer has spread to pancreas. The vet did not know if pancreas was inflammed due to infection or cancer. She did get some antibiotics. And while there at vet, she got insulin, although her sugar level seemed to remain high.
