Hello everyone, My dogs name is Buddy he is a rescue, we got Buddy when he was 8 weeks old, and he is now 8 years old.
I noticed in January that he was drinking lots of water and had a accident in his cage (both of our furry children sleep in cages next to our bed) which he never does. I took him to the vet and he was diagnosed as diabetic. He is very healthy and thin, and only 26 lbs. She was so surprised but it is what it is. So we started on insulin.
I was very scared of giving the shots but now both of us are pro’s at it. Buddy sits in my lap with his head on my leg and I do the deed! then he get vegetables!. But two days ago he walked into a pole outside and I thought that was strange. So I watched him and when I fed him by hand he couldn’t see my hand. So back to the vet and in one day he could see and the next not! Cataracts! I’m very sad at the thought he can’t run and play in the yard with Trudy T and he is scared as he just stands.
So lots of questions what do I do first? Let him find his way around the house (he has found the water dish and food) but he keeps walking into things and then just stops so I know he just can’t figure it out. So glad I found this site. My husband and I have a appointment next week about new lens for him. any thoughts on that as well?
