My dogs name is Raven, she’s a black Skipperke. She was born July 3,2004. This past Wednesday September 23,2015 we noticed that Raven was walking into things so me made a vet appointment and she went to see the vet yesterday September 24,2015. The vet stated that Raven is completely blind stage 3 cataracts. And she’s got diabetes, the last time she was at the vet in February she was 17lbs and they wanted her to lose weight so we changed her diet according to what they said to give her. And yesterday she was 11lbs.
My mother and I have been crying, it’s really sad and everyone keeps saying she’ll be fine don’t worry she will adapt. But it’s hard and sad seeing her like this. And now I’m really scared with her having diabetes.
I have a million questions that I wanna find out but none of the sites can help me. Like if she gains her weight back will she still need insulin shots? What’s her life expectancy? It’s like a really bad break up and I know j should be thankful she’s alive but it’s really hard. She’s the only dog that I’ve had since she was born so all of this is new to me.
