Does regular exercise help dogs with diabetes?

ANSWER

Regular exercise will help your dog lose weight and lower blood sugar levels. It’s best to have your dog exercise for the same length of time and at the same intensity every day. An unusually long or vigorous workout could cause blood sugar levels to drop too low.
