|I adopted Tito when he was 2 years old. He is now 9 years old.
He is the sweetest boy. He was diagnosed on March 12, 2007.
I thought he may have had a kidney infection because he had pottied in
the house while I was work and he never does that. I researched on
the web and found the diabetes pet website and began to think that he could
have diabetes. I took him to the vet the next day and the vet confirmed
my fears, it was diabetes. He stayed at the vet for three days and then
he was able to come home. In six weeks I made about 20 trips to the
vet for blood glucose tests and follow up visits. I have to say that
his vet is wonderful and has done a great job of treating him!!!
Tito gets Humulin N for his insulin. The vet started him on this
from the beginning. It took a while to get his diet set up because
Tito also suffers from food allergies. He now eats Wellness Venison
dry food mixed with Hill's w/d canned food. He also gets a Wellness
Apple and Yogurt treat with his shots. This has worked great for him. I
am happy to say that as we approach his six month sugar anniversary he
is regulated and back to his old self! I am so proud of my
