Re: Introduction for Aku!

Nice to meet you and Aku!

I hate pancreatitis... so far, I've never had a dog suffer from it personally and I hope it stays that way.

Re: Please - advice needed.

The hunger and thirst definitely point to the need to check for Cushing's disease and perhaps also hypothyroidism since she's gaining weight - she at least does not seem to be on too little insulin....

Re: Newly diagnosed Jack Russell Terrier with Diabetes

Re: Pray for mochi..
