The petdiabetes mailing list is for
discussion of issues related to diabetes and pets. The members
of this list have various experiences - some have a pet who was
recently diagnosed, while others have been caring for a diabetic pet for years. But we have
two things in common: we are here to help each other learn and understand about diabetes, and we are here to
support each other.
The information and discussions are not a substitute for
proper veterinary care or advice. Please discuss the information you receive on this list
with your veterinarian before making any changes to your pet's care. As a reminder of this, each message is automatically appended
with a footer that reads "Messages are personal opinion. Please consult your vet."
- Be polite and
respectful. There are many
different opinions and management techniques for diabetic pets. Discussion
encouraged, but rudeness is not allowed.
- Post only
diabetes-related messages. This is a very broad topic
and as long as your message is about something that relates to the care
of your diabetic pet, it is ok.

not getting list mail
The most common reason for
this is because your mail box has overflowed or there's some problem at
your ISP with mail delivery. As the list owner, I get notified every time
list mail does not get delivered because it places additional work on all
the mail servers involved and needs to be stopped. If this happens for a
day or two, I turn your list mail off. Unfortunately, notifying you that
I've done this probably won't work because your mail isn't being delivered
If I've turned your mail off, you can turn it back on by using the web
page at our yahoo group or by sending an email to:
You may have accidentally flagged your list mail as junk or spam and it is
being sent to another mail folder. Check your other mail folders to see if
it's been tagged as junk or spam. Sometimes this happens at web e-mail
accounts like msn or yahoo, but it can also happen at a regular ISP who
get a little over-zealous with their spam filtering.
