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.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
