We have had pet troubles lately. One cat helplessly up a tree, a second cat hates me (never had a cat hate me, she came from a family with many kids and she loves kids, hates adults) and she ended up with a UTI because our 12 year old lab mix drank all of the animal water as she was becoming diabetic and we didn't catch it quick enough. What I mean is we didn't realize she was gorging on water and not sharing. We are lucky the other dog and cat didn't have trouble. Hate me cat won't let us catch her to get to vet and dog Nikki lab mix dog has just had 3rd dose of insulin ever tonight. Insulin easy to give but vet said she was borderline dka and I think she is getting worse. Sugar was over 600 2 days ago. Poor dog, we got her within a month of getting married, then had kids 6 years later. She is best dog ever. Up until last week took her morning run for 1/2 every day. We have given her great life and will do what we can for her, but I think she is fading. Just rambling a bit . . . This will crush our boys.
