I'm sorry to hear of this with Belle. Although there are any number of causes of diarrhea and anorexia in dogs, pancreatitis is our primary concern in diabetics and, in fact, diabetes is a common sequela of chronic pancreatitis. It's important that Belle's vet know what you're currently seeing. I would expect the vet to want to perform a PSL blood test which is most sensitive and specific for detecting the presence of pancreatitis - a potentially life threating disorder.

In general, after one missed meal, the previous insulin dose should be given at the next prescribed time. After two consecutive missed meals, the dose should be halved. After three consecutive missed meals, insulin should be stopped and your vet consulted. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
