When our dog was diagnosed with diabetes, we weren't given a lot of information. And when our dog went blind from cataracts, we felt a little desperate. I came to the internet and started reading stories of other dogs living with diabetes. A story about one dog in particular, Lynne's Rena, gave me hope. Rena was still hiking the wildnerness of Utah even though she lost her sight to cataracts. That brief story made me realize that Chris' life wasn't over because his vision was gone.

So when I set up a website about diabetic dogs, I knew one of the pages had to be devoted to the stories of other people who are on this path with their dogs.



The inspiration for this website. To learn more about Chris' road to regulation, see his case study.
Chris was diagnosed in September 2003 at the age of 9.
