Itís been a while and Earl is doing great.
His last two tests were 120 and 140.
He now jumps up on his chair after meals so I can pick him up and put him in hammock for injections.
Itís been about 3 months and itís now gotten extremely better and no more worries about getting medicine in Earl safely and less painful.

The hammock works great and Earl likes the massages,treats, and back scratching when he is up there.I use a small clamp to pinch skin for tent and I can give shot one handed.

I am thinking about dry prescription food but it is made from bi products which I think can cause problems later on.
They basically make it out of what they throw away for humans.
I may try some heart and liver meats from local butcher.

Hi Rob and Earl,


Not been on the site lately, see your story. Fine to read things are going better. In the beginning I got the seringes from the vet. The needles where 11 mm long. Now I buy them on internet BD U40 8mm long needle. For my dog it works fine. I also use vetsulin.
I also used the Freestyle libre sensor. You can look at that on Youtube. Search at: Freestyle libre sensor dog. It's a device for people but also used on dogs and cats. You can read my post when you search my name Annemieke in the line above using the Search button.

A hugg for Earl and thumbs up for you

I have a picture of Earl as you profile picture but itís not showing up.
Iíll take a look and see if I can get it to display.
If you click on my profile it shows a picture of Earl.

The weather and virus made getting hammock and a table built take longer than I expected but itís done and has solved my problem giving a shot with one hand only.

hi Rod

how is Earl doing?

theres a new member Aneng with a newly diabetic pug that could use your help.in getting a hammock please
