I have formed a group called Diabetic Corgis. This is for anyone to join. It's mainly to provide support to owners of diabetic Corgis, but I'm not limiting the group to just that.
I almost lost my sweet Chester to diabetes last May. My vet diagnosed him on a Friday, but didn't want to give him any insulin for a week because he'd been on steroids for a neck injury. Well, that almost killed him. By the following Monday (Memorial Day) he lost the use of his back legs and had been crying in pain the entire weekend.
I was afraid I would have to let my Chester go. Diabetic supplies and food are not cheap! But after one day of insulin Chester was nearly back to normal. Within one week he was better than he'd been in months!
It's been difficult keeping him away from food, he's a bottomless pit! But it is worth it to see his bunny-butt every day. He's just turned 12 and I am so happy that I didn't give up on him.
