Ruby was recently diagnosed with diabetes, and has now gone lame. 
She's on a pretty strong anti-inflammatory.  We are still carrying her around,
and hopefully she'll start responding well to the new meds.

Your dog can live very happily once you get her regulated. 

And if you go the route of home cooking rather than store bought food,
she'll feel ever so special. 

My Ruby was diagnosed in May of 2003, has just recently become regulated,
and is doing sooo much better.  I feed her chicken burgers with italian
dressing, some brown rice and broccoli.

This is what Susan feeds Ruby.
I give her the following meal twice a day. 

1/2 lb of chicken ground meat (not white meat only) - preferably bbq; 
1/2 cup of brown rice
1/2-2/3 cup of broccoli
About 2T Italian dressing

She loves it.  I based the volumes 
on the number of calories she should be eating per day. 


I love you, Mom!
