-diagnosed January 10th with FD.

7-9oz. Eagle Pack canned beef,and oceanfish, split between 2 meals a day fed 20 minutes before shot 8:30am and pm
+3.5 feed tablespoon snack of canned
since diet contro; Abby eats 3 meals a day of 6 oz of eagle pack divided amongst them and the occasional innova evo crunchy for a treat along with dried salmon, shrimp, ham and crazilly enough, she loves a sliver of bologna on occasion.
Please read scary hypo, it has changed the way i approach this disease for ever. I will never shoot without a test and I learned a hard lesson at the expense of my beautiful Abby!
I believe Abby's diabetes was due to a bad tooth infection that flared up and down over the last 12 months or so. Once we treated with antibiotics and changed her diet, her numbers came right down. She had the right canine removed on sat. June 10th, and is recovering well. her bg's stayed under 6.3 the whole time she was at the vet and since then they have been under 5mmol.
She is the heart of our house and unbeleivably strong.
