Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
What did his latest glucose curve look like?
How high and low are his numbers going?

I suspect that his glucose is still not controlled. Most diabetics are checked more often by having glucose curves performed. If his numbers still travel too high then you will not be able to get weight on him not matter how hard you try.
