Achieving good glycemic control in the insulin-dependent diabetic patient requires maintaining a highly consistent feeding schedule... Or does it??? Diabetic dogs often suffer from a finicky appetite which creates a challenge when standard practices are applied. In this session we will discuss strategies to manage this challenge. We will explain the traditional approach of administering half the insulin dose when a meal is skipped and discuss its limitations. We will then review two alternative approaches in which commitment to a single diet is not necessary and insulin therapy is adjusted based on the type of food and the and amount fed in any given meal. These two strategies have the potential to greatly relieve owners from the day-to-day stresses of diabetes management as well as improve overall glycemic control in diabetic dogs.

We are so thrilled to host Chen Gilor, DVM, PhD, DACVIM, who will provide his insights on this disease.
