Our dog has diabetes. We found out last Friday when G took her to the vet. She had been loosing so much weight, drinking a lot of water and thus needing to go outside every few hours. We didn’t realize those were textbook symptoms hence why we didn’t go sooner but at least they were able to diagnose her.
She’s on a very low dose of insulin at the moment and we have seen major improvements with her. She goes next Friday for an insulin curve test to see what her exact dosage will be. I’m glad she’s going to be okay, the vet was very positive in letting us know it’s manageable.
It’s not going to be cheap though. Looking at about $3000 a year for medicine and needles; that on top of her other vet check ups and shots. I’m glad we budget though and very thankfully to have wiggle room. The vet bills for both last Friday and this Friday ate from our vacation fund deposit for the month but I’m happy that it didn’t affect our car loan payment.
