What do I need to know about backpacking with my 11 yr old diabetic dog?


Max was dx in 11/10 with insulin dependant diabetes...I am still working with our vet trying to regulate him...as of today, his level was 275 ( down from 600) we are at 38 units twice daily, as well as a special diet... Do you have any suggestions/advice if I should even attemp this trip? It's 18 miles in 2 days, I bought a Frio wallet to keep the insulin cool, but am concerned that the exercise will be too much for him. Please advise. Thank you
