I am sorry you are concerned about Ginger Rose. How long since her last dose of insulin?

What was her last blood sugar reading?

Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Sometimes diabetes improves after a bout of pancreatitis has passed. I would have her blood sugar checked; if it is 200 or higher she needs to get back on insulin.

Is she drinking a lot of water?
