diabetes isn't the end...

I used to post here a while ago. My dog Devon had diabetes. He passed last night but that is not why I am here.

Like Natalie's dog Chris, diabetes was the least of Devon's problems. He didn't die...

Re: Andy, the Wonder Wiener

I took my cans back to the store and swapped them out for other food. I gave them a copy of the actual fda.gov information that I printed out. The owner wasn't there but one of the managers was. She...

Re: Andy, the Wonder Wiener

Oh no... I had no idea. If this happened in June, how come my store is still getting shipments in 3 months later? If I had known this I obviously would not only not have recommended it, I certainly...

Re: Mik: 13 yr old Shih-Tzu

I always do his shot based on what he actually ate. Since he is a very big dog, it's a lot easier for me to do dosages based on what he actually ate. Today was a bad day for him. I got most of his...

Re: Mik: 13 yr old Shih-Tzu

Ditto what Kathy said. It's nice to see a vet that isn't just shoving meds into the poor guy.

My dog used to dislike breakfast, so AM insulin shots used to be a major challenge here, too. As...

Re: Andy, the Wonder Wiener

Evanger has a couple of single source canned foods. One of them is Mackerel. They stick a bunch of very identifiable chucks of Mackerel in a can, and cook it. Devon's crazy about it. It's like big...

Re: Mik: 13 yr old Shih-Tzu

Robert, you can only do what you can do, and you are doing the right thing. Is he drinking water or is he getting dehydrated?

Re: Mik: 13 yr old Shih-Tzu

It's my dad's favorite saying too. If you're like me you still mutter "yeah but..." under your breath.

Please post an update after you take Mik to the vet. I am thinking about you both.

Re: Mik: 13 yr old Shih-Tzu

Robert,

I went through this with a 15 year old cat. He started to sit in the middle of the living room right after I shut off the light to go to bed, instead of on my pillow as he did my whole...

It gets a lot easier to put the pieces together as time goes by. You'll do fine.

Re: Baby's diet changes - need a fiber source

Hi Ida

I give Devon about 3/4 tablespoon of flaxseed once or twice a day. It depends on how fussy he's being about his food. He's a big dog too, 111 lbs.

W/D is quite high in fiber already,...

Re: Devon, aka Mr. Fussy

I meant it to come out, if he stayed at the 150,140's that would be fine and I wouldn't feed him but he never ever stays there... he only passes it on his way to 75 or something.

It is amazing how...

Re: Devon, aka Mr. Fussy

He's 144....2:13AM

I know 151's perfect but if he's been high for a while, he never stays there just flies right past it. I'm not adjusting any of my figures. I'm using the One Touch Ultra.
