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

Jesse has now entered her 10th year . She was a young dog at 5.5 years when she contracted the disease . This was a learning experience and what i heard from the professionals in the beginning was substandard at that time . the forum got me and jesse on track to take on the challenge and glad we stepped up . It was not easy and very scary . You settle into a new normal dogs life and its as enjoyable as any dogs life .
Jesse-26 lbs - 16 years old ,10.5 years diabetic, one meal a day homemade and a vitabone snack . 3 shots of Novolin a day . Total insulin for a 24 hour period is 6.5 units of NPH insulin .
