Yes. In fact our male schnauzer is on the same insulin my husband was on. We both have diabetes along with the dog. It takes alot of dedication because you have to make sure they eat the right food, the right amount of food. Mornings I could sleep in I have to get up at 6:30 to make sure he eats at the same time so he can take his insulin shot. We have to wait and work it in right at night if we have something planned because it is the same thing. He has to eat at 6:30 and then his night shot. We love him so much and I do not regret any of it, but like I said it takes alot of dedication to take care of a sick animal. You asked about the hypoglecemia, which they can be thrown iinto if you are not careful. I keep karo syrup to put on his gums in case his blood sugar falls. Its really better for it to be too high than too low. If you have a diabetic animal good luck. Alot of people put them down I understand, but we had rather try our best for all three of our babies. Any thing they need or we can do for them is what we do.
