Lightbulb Canine Diabetes

I found it odd coming to this site and saw the pet forum, so I will post.

My dog is a diabetic, she's been diabetic for 6+yrs now, she takes 2 injections of insulin a day and I have her on a special diet. She wlll be 12 this year, she is a border collie/heeler mix.

Anyone out there have a diabetic pet ?

If you need any help just ask, or what the symtoms are, I can mention a few symptoms, excessive urination and leaking in the house, and drinking more water than usual.

Hi K9,

I too have a diabetic dog. She is 10 years old and blind. I don't know how long she's had diabetes, but it was apparently untreated by her former owners for a long time. She's been with us for 3 years now. I also have a diabetic cat who is 18 and been a diabetic for many years. Both get injections twice a day.
