Samantha turned 7 on Christmas Eve. She has always been as healthy as a horse. We noticed she was more mopey than usual the last 2-3 weeks. but thought it had to do with being back on the work routine after the holidays. She also quit eating her dog food… She would still eat treats and whatever else she could find… but she was losing weight. She has lost 19 pounds!! She now weighs 51 pounds which is ideal for her body type… but it is because she now has diabetes. Her blood sugar was 470 at the vets today. We started her on insulin and she is now on the Hill's W/D diet. No more treats… How do you tell a basset she cannot have any more good stuff? I was told they make low carb treats so guess I will have to find some for her. I am a bit numb at the moment and will have to do research to make sure we give her the best care. If you have any suggestions on treats or feedings we would love to hear them! Send some drool for my poor little girl!
