Just checking in with a Lily update.

She’s aging gracefully, but slowing down a bit as she grows older. I probably shouldn’t say this but she hasn’t had any ear or skin infections for a long time now. Her BG levels have remained stable.

Arthritis is a problem, but she seems to be coping with it better now that she is taking CBD oil.

We just got back from a long walk, so she decided to relax a bit...

Happy Birthday to Lily! She’s 12 years old today and also entering her 7th year with diabetes and hypothyroidism.

In order to get her to eat more consistently, I’ve changed her diet a bit. She’s been getting one cup of Nulo Cod and Lentils, along with a half cup of shredded boiled chicken for a few months now.
