My name is Nicole, in March of this year my baby Opie was diagnosed with diabetes. Opie hasalways had a lot of health issues. He was therunt of his litter, he had to be given yogurt as a baby, he was always getting eye infections and ear infections. I had a pile of vet visits by the time he was 3 but he was worth every visit, every second of care. When he was 5 he started having problems going to the bathroom, I had to start administratingenemas. He has always been attached to my hip, so much so he became dependent on me to bewith him every time he went to the bathroom.Yes, this wasn't easy but it was better than himholding in his urine, which he would do if I wasn't home. Eventually his vet said he had mega colon, and said Opie would always have issues but I was prepared to take care of him. Opie turned 10 in June. In January 2020 I noticed Opie wasn't playing as much, and he started to loose a lot of weight, even though he was eating. He was always drinking water and when he urinated it was a river. Finally in March I took him to his Dr and he couldn't believe how different he was, he was lethargic, and boney and I was a mess. He ran blood work, and took a urine sample and I waited 3 days to hear back. Opie was put on 1 unit twice a day of Lantus but after a month he had more blood work and his Dr upped his Lantus to 2 units twice a day. He was put on a prescription diabetic food. I bought a glucose meter and began testing at home. It is now the end of May and I have him on a scheduled injection at 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. but he is still lethargic, he is still very thin and he cries a lot during the day wanting more food even though he eats two big meals before his injections and he gets lil meals in-between. I added suggested nonprescription food because just the diabetic food alone was giving him diarrhea. I don't know what to do to get my baby back to almost happy. He is also blind now, his Dr says both of his eyes are completely cloudy. He is having more trouble moving, he already had arthritis but I understand the diabetes will make movement worse. I can't imagine my life without him but I feel lost as to what more I can do. I will do anything for him, I wish I could give him my pancreas but unfortunately I can't. I have been reading a lot of posts on this forum and it has helped but I can't do this alone anymore. I'm sorry for the rather long post but I wanted to give a little background on our journey thus far. Any guidance would be appreciated. Thank you. Many thanks to Nan & Amber for responding and helping me get here.
