Default Re: Diabetes, Cushings and Pancreatitis in my Dog

we managed cushings and diabetes at the same time for our dog for 3 years. Did we have some scary moments? yes. were there ups and downs? yes

but it is doable. She did not die from cushings or diabetes. Her little body and mind just wore out. During the 3 years she had a lot of happy times chasing squirrels and bossing us around.

Learn what you can, monitor what you can, and try not to obsess too much. for the last year we just focused on whether she was happy. If she was happy, I was happy.

We did wind up monitoring her blood sugar at home (it was very hard for me to get blood) because her blood sugar got scarily low a couple of times

The people on this forum and the cushing forum were invaluable as people in my real life just didn't get it.

hang in there, if I can do it, you can do it! Judi
