For those members who want more chat we have an off topic group where
we share crazy information, pictures and just plain nonsense.
We encourage our members to join this group if they want to post off
topic subjects. Anyone from the groups are welcome to join.
This group helps to keep our diabetes pet group more on topic and at
a more acceptable amount of daily postings. Not everyone wants
off topic chat and that way we have a happy medium for all the groups.
Remember we have two websites:
If you find the volume of emails too high right now we can switch
you to the rainbow group that only average five to ten emails a month.
If you want to be featured in a Who
am I Email,
Have your diabetic pet's story posted
to the website,
Have a memorial page made for your Angel
If you have any suggestions for a weekly
or monthly feature about something that you think would make the group
then send Judy an email with your idea.
If you know of a URL that you think should be added to this reference
list or, know of a bad link on our url guide please send an email to Bonnie
Judy's Email: email@example.com
Bonnie's Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
** All urls submitted to us will be researched by us before
being added to the website
We are not vets and each post is the opinion of the poster and we take
no responsibilities for their opinions. Take your pet to the vet and find
a vet that you can work with. This list is for sharing opinions and
