Well, it's been a while since last I was here. I recently received some devastating news from my vet. My beloved little Radar, who I have had as a companion for 11 & 1/2 years, is in end stages of pancreatic diabetes. I don't know how much longer I have with him before he crosses the Rainbow Bridge, but I hope that I have time to make some preparations for his passing. He did start eating more when he got home from the doc, but I haven't seen him drink yet, though they did give him fluids. And it's been about twelve or fourteen hours. Doc said he could pass in two weeks or two years; there's no way of telling at this point. I just pray that I get more time with him, and that his quality of life remains high.

Hi Oldsoldier,

I can relate to your worry. Our dog has been diabetic for about 4 years. It’s hard when she won’t eat or drink. (We’ve found that giving low sodium chicken broth helps.) It eases our minds to think about care and quality of life we’ve given her over the years, and the joy she’s brought to our family. I hope the best for you and Radar.

Hi Oldsoldier

Make the best of the time you have together and I'll keep my fingers crossed that you and Radar have the two plus some years.

I'm preparing myself as our cat is almost 18 and she probably doesn't have long left and two of our dogs are twelve and thirteen and showing signs of slowing right down.

I'm giving the dogs as much attention as I can and the cat gets all the treats, chicken and bacon she wants. And no telling off when she has an accident.

Best Regards
