I'm always worried about my dog being diabetic. Probably more so than myself, even though I'm probably at a higher risk.

My parents' cat is diabetic. They just give him an insulin shot with each meal. He never really showed signs of being diabetic--besides the fact that he's really fat--they just diagnosed it when looking at hematology results.

aw man. I'm sorry. I was hoping you were going to say you were up gaming or watching anime or movies all night. I'm sorry.

Well, you could always get him tested. It happens a lot with older dogs.

When I first moved back to Ohio, it was for a supposed position managing an animal rescue group building a new facility, but the group soon broke into two groups over in-fighting and some possible monetary improprieties, and neither still exists today. I quickly moved on to other things, but for a couple years I basically did a lot of work with high-needs animals, mostly older or with chronic health conditions who get insulin or have complicated med schedules. Sheba's the last of them, all the others have died including a beautiful old wolf hybrid who was also diabetic and had such bad degenerative disk problems he had to be put down last year because he couldn't walk at all anymore and was totally blind.

Some diabetic animals actually lose too much weight and can never put it back on if not diagnosed early enough, from a life-threatening condition called diabetic ketoacidosis.

Well, since Jude decided to make this a Sunday thread too...

I spent Saturday night closing the store, so I didn't try home til 11 or so. Tonight, I have to work an overnight shift, so my plan last night was to stay up way late, sleep late today, and go in well rested. Then, on my way home, I am informed that instead, I have to go do some last minute family get together. Ok, so i'll get up at like noon, instead of like 3. No big. So, I still stay up til about 430.

But my wife has oh-so-fortuitously come down with a migraine, and that means daddy gets to deal with a pissy teething 7 month old! Which is why I got up at 7:30, have been up since then, and won't even get home from work tomorrow until like 6am. Fun couple of days!

I had a boring night pet-setting, I finished out The Preacher and was pretty underwhelmed by the whole 9 volume experience. There were probably 4-5 good volume's worth of material there with a shit ending.

He is young though, just over one year. He's also small and highly athletic.

He does eat, but at random times. He will play and in the middle of play he'll run to his dish and munch a few nibbles, our if you give him an apple slice, he'll wait to get another before he eats his piece. He's the first dog we've owned who doesn't immediately devour food when presented with it.

Just remember, no grapes or raisins!

Oh, I don't think your dog sounds diabetic, that's how a young dog like him should eat.
