Default Re: Who took their dog to a specialist? Advice?

I agree with you that vets want the pets to be brought in for money. But things like checking dogs sugar can be invasive, and not something that many people are comfortable with. Also a lot depends on how the dog responds to it. The first time we tried to get it from Daisy's ear, like it was recommended. My Lord that was such torture for her and for us! We couldn't do it, we had to take her in. Her ear was red and bleeding but not enough to collect into a drop. Until we figured out a way to take it from her non weight bearing paw pad which she doesn't feel at all, so it's become pretty easy now. Thank God she allows it, otherwise we probably wouldn't be able to do it. I could see how many people wouldn't be able to. I would say collecting the sugar is much more difficult than giving insulin.
