Re: Grand Lady Snickers passes away April 21, 2019

I just wanted to update everyone on my status. After looking at several dog/no dog options we decided to get a Skye Terrier puppy. His name is Blue and he is ridiculously cute.

While there is no...

Re: Help! I accidentally gave my dog too much insulin!

Thanks you for all the kind words of support.

I'm feeling a little better now and am finally getting some rest. The last week of Snickers life was pretty intense for me. She needed a lot of...

Re: Help! I accidentally gave my dog too much insulin!

Snickers passed away yesterday evening at home, surrounded by her family.

She had pancreatitis in February and never really got her strength up after that. There were good days and bad days but ...

Re: Help! I accidentally gave my dog too much insulin!

Snickers wants to thank everyone for the birthday wishes! I would also like to thank everyone on this forum because I don't think she would have made it if we hadn't found this site. :)

Re: Help! I accidentally gave my dog too much insulin!

It really is pretty funny to see her float - she lists to one side but she is still so dignified and unfazed by it all. She's like the Judy Dench of the dog neighborhood. The other dogs always...

Re: Help! I accidentally gave my dog too much insulin!

I'm just checking in with a mid-year update on Snickers.

She is doing pretty good overall but her age and arthritis are catching up with her. I was able to get her to swim at the lake a fair...

Re: Help! I accidentally gave my dog too much insulin!

Snickers is still alive and seems to be no worse for the wear.

After the first couple of hours she dropped to around 250 and hovered in that range for a couple of hours. Then she suddenly...

Re: Help! I accidentally gave my dog too much insulin!

Ok. The first hour after I sugared her up she registered high, the second hour she is at 239. I have a car appt. in 2 hours and I'm freaking out about leaving her.

Re: Help! I accidentally gave my dog too much insulin!

Thanks, I just tried to get some Karo into her by putting it on her gums but she was not excited about that at all. I think most of it is in her beard.

Exclamation Help! I accidentally gave my dog too much insulin!

I just gave Snickers too much insulin. She didn't eat her breakfast so I gave her half a dose. Went for her walk, she came in, ate her food and then instead of giving her the last half of her dose I...

Just a quick update on Snickers. Last month she reached both her 2nd Sugarversary and her 17th birthday!

Re: Snickers' story

So today Snickers had a physical. The vet said she has a slight heart murmur. He graded it a II. This wasn't her regular vet - there are three at the practice but I voluntarily will see any of them -...

I opted to wait and not give her another shot. Numbers were high last night and again this morning as expected. I'm pretty sure I missed her completely. She even sat and looked at me before the walk...

Re: Snickers' story

So this morning I gave Snicker's a fur shot. I've been trying to be careful with the shots because she was having pain with them initially but this morning it just went wrong.

Do you just leave it...

Re: Snickers' story

I think the food was ok. I'm not even sure that's what caused Snickers to get sick but she wasn't that excited about the food either so I think I will just return it.

I'm thinking about trying...

Thanks for the response. Friday morning she wouldn't eat anything, even people food so I opted not to give her any insulin. She was at 141 (unadjusted Relion #) and I wasn't going to...
