I am a newbie.....and this is my first post.
I have a 12 yr old golden retriever.....and recently she started loosing her eye sight and has been diagonised as a diabetic.
because of the diabetes she has developed catract (which is irr-reversible).
The vet has ruled out surgery,one because of her age and secondly in India vets are not very confident about performing the surgery.
So we have decided to go for insulin injections daily to control her sugar levels ( i m dreading that also...it will be very difficult to inject her everyday).
Can anyone plz suggest what kind of a diet regime we should follow for her, we guys are vegies so no meat or fish ,but she does take egg.
Our whole house has become dull and sad since she has been diagonesd with diabetes and has lost her vision..........and even in this time she has raised our spirits....she is adjusting well to the loss of vision and has started coming back to her cheerful self( afer the initial shock).
Its a very difficult time for all of us.........incase any one has suggestions about the diet for diabetic dogs..................plz let me know.
