Re: Introducing Maggie - Diabetic 8 years!

I am so glad Maggie was able to take care of you this time. As it was so sudden and out of the blue....and with the whining- she was definitely trying to convey something.

Re: Newly diagnosed Diabetic- but he's a "strange case"

Lots of good advice already. I strongly second Judi's recommendation to not follow your original vet with regards to diabetes. Obviously a dog who had a siezure at 20 units should not be increased...
