Optimal treatment for your dog requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be crucial and may include the following recommendations:

  • Administer as directed any medications prescribed by your veterinarian. Inability to medicate the dog can be a reason for treatment failure.

  • Feed your dog frequent small meals.

  • Observe your dog's general activity level and appetite.

  • Observe your dog for signs of recurrent hypoglycemia, such as lethargy, weakness, staggering, unusual behavior, apparent blindness, muscular twitching, seizures.

  • Return regularly for blood glucose determinations. Return of hypoglycemia can indicate re-growth of an insulin-producing tumor.
