Hello Everyone...my name is Jade and my 11 year old boy Boots was diagnosed with diabetes just this afternoon and my mind is reeling...not only from the cost (which is sounding like it's WAY beyond my means) but all the things I will have to do to keep him healthy..I'm a single mom who works full-time (sometimes more.) From what my vet told me, I will have to put him on expensive insulin, along with weekly vet visits to check his levels. My vet visit today was 200 dollars, so I am looking at 200 every week til the dr can "get in under control." And then all the shots at home, the monitoring... We did also have the horrible conversation about putting him down, but that thought is so painful that I can barely process it...but I just don't see any other way! 1000 dollars a month is so far out of my reach...does anyone have any advice for me?
