Default Re: Scruff the Schnauzer

Welcome to you and Scruff - diabetes just develops in certain dogs. Schnauzers are very prone unfortunately but their prediabetes lifestyle - food and exercise - has very little to do with the development. Some dogs have a trauma to their pancreas and many developed it from steroid use and some breeds just are prone to it. I feel it is nothing you did or didn't do. Just luck of the draw.

I will be looking forward to learning more about Scruff.
