My dog, Zeus, was diagnosed with diabetes the day
before we were to leave on Christmas vacation this year. Zeus is a three
year old neutered black lab/ hound mix. He is 60 pound and is in excellent
condition. Three days before he was diagnosed, he started to urinate in
the house and drink large quantities of water. I knew he was sick because
Zeus hadn't urinated the house since he was a very small puppy. He has
always been in excellent shape and has been very healthy.
