Hello everyone! I am a dog groomer from Maryland who has had some unfortunate luck with my pets health in the last year. I joined because December 4th I found out that my 9 year old tuxedo Frank is diabetic. And then January 4th my 5 year old tabby and white Elvis was also diagnosed with diabetes. We also have a 15 year old black cat named Banshee, who's only real issue so far is a suspected chicken allergy. This has been incredibly jarring and overwhelming. I am scrambling to put order and routine back in my life and theirs and feel like everything has been turned upside down for us. I have a decent amount of experience with animals. Elvis is my bottle-fed kitty, I have had him since he was a day old after someone found him and brought him to the grooming salon I worked at. He is not overweight and the vet seemed shocked too. Frank was found with his litter by my aunt who rescues cats. He is prone to weight problems and has been in lipidosis twice which I pulled him out of both times by force feeding method and the help of some meds. This has been the hardest situation to accept though, and I am struggling but I will do anything to get them back on track. I am glad I found this forum, I am sure I will need advice along the way and maybe eventually help others as well. I have a learning curve here but hopefully we will get there.
