Default Re: How long has your dog lived with diabetes so far (Jan 2018)

Mine passed away within 2 weeks of getting diagnosed. It wasn't the diabetes that took him but all the complications that came with it (DKA, pancreatitis, infections...etc). I feel guilty because if he was diagnosed earlier, he might have been saved but we waited until we saw absolute symptoms which probably meant he was nearing the end by the time we noticed it.

I already have another dog who is as health as it gets, but I'll definitely get her checked to see if she has anything. I don't want to wait for the obvious symptoms to show up and it be too late. Besides that, I don't plan on getting another dog for a long, long time, if ever since I proved that I don't deserve the unconditional love and loyalty of a dog.
