I think my dog has diabetes *updated*

Recommended Posts

So our 8 year old dog has been drinking and peeing like crazy, has an appetite of a horse and has been losing weight like crazy. I googled his symptoms and it all points to canine diabetes.

The soonest we could get him to the vet was tomorrow at 10:30, we will know more then. Has anyone experienced this or does your dog have diabetes? We are trying to prepare ourselves if it is, but still hoping that maybe it's not! Any advice or suggestions would be great.

AW i'm so sorry sad.gif it might not be diabetes though. Our dog Celtic had the same symptoms and it was a hyperthyroid...which we were able to treat with meds. Keep us posted on what the vet says! I'll be thinking of you guys!

I will thank you! Did it come on really sudden? were there anymore symptoms?

I don't remember there being anything else actually. Well he had colitis when he was a puppy, but I'm not sure that was related. And it did start all of a sudden, once he hit about the age of 2.

MsShelley, Im sorry about your dog. I had yorkie poodle for 13 years and he had diabetes for about three years. We had to give him a shot of insulin twice a day and we managed it very well. He did have some of those symptoms. I hope its not, but if it is dont worry about it, it is easily manageable. A good look on it is when we gave my dog his shot twice a day he loved it because we gave him the juicy food so he thought it was a treat. Keep us up dated!!

My friends dog had diabetes. I don't remember the symptoms on the onset of it. But I know it was easy to control. She just had to give her a pill everyday.

yeah, I talked to a lady at work that her cat has diabetes and apparently the vet told her not to feed him dry food. He will be loving life. I just want him to feel better, you can definitely tell he isn't well.

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
