Diabetes and dogs
« on: May 09, 2016, 03:50:29 PM »
Hey All ,
Anyone else have a dog with diabetes ?
Olivia was diagnosed 2 months ago and has been regulated on insulin twice a day.

She has been doing well till this weekend , she went completely blind in a matter of three days from cataracs . She went from an active dog to a terrified invalid. I knew eye problems come with diabetes but from what i've read it is a side affect that affects all most all dogs and happens very quickly.

She is seeing a specialist this friday and it will involve surgery to remove them at some point.   If not it will develope into glaucoma and in dogs it is very painful , equivalent to a migraine .  I was surprised and pissed the vet never mentioned this.
I was just wondering if anyone has had this experience with a pet ?

Hi

I have no experience with diabetes and dogs, but just wanted to say you right to be pissed off with the vet, really sorry to hear this and I hope Olivia will be okay.

Hi Wade, I have no personal experience with pets and diabetes but I wanted to let you know I am so sorry Olivia is having vision issues.  Poor baby.  I hope surgery can remedy this in a hurry.  Please keep us updated.  She and you are in my thoughts.

Still going through a rough patch and hope all gets resolved soon.

Hey...!!!
I used to to that in Key West at 4 Am after the bars closed  ::)

Olivia has to have more tests, but will most likely have surgery
somewhere mid June and regain her sight  :)

Olivia will be having her cataracts removed this coming Wednesday.
We have to be in rhode Island by 7 AM and will stay over night for her post op visit.

Ill be glad when she is only dealing with shots twice a day, now she is carried up and down the stairs drops 5 times a day and set meal times.
At least she has quit wandering off...lol      Mornings are hectic  :o

She will be able to see when she comes to and will be on lots of drops for 2 weeks after surgery and will also be a cone head.
But I cant wait to see her run on the beach again 8) it will all be worth it.

Thats so good to hear Wade, wish her luck through the procedure and recovery.

Gotta be honest, I hate seeing this thread pop up, I always hesitate to click on it for fear of bad news. Glad things are getting better for her.

Meanwhile Bijou has taken to pulling up every shrub in the yard, dragging them back to the compost heap, helping out I guess. Damn dog.

The cone! I should feel like shit but I always laugh at dogs wearing that cone. Diva always hung her head in shame and walked away from me making fun of her, she knew and didn't like it one bit.

Wishing your doggy a quick recovery, Wade.  I'm with Zach, I always chuckle to myself when seeing a dog with a cone on.  Poor baby.  You're a good daddy.

           ojo        Hey, dear friend Wade, I'm happy for you and Olivia...is there a way for you to give me Olivias doc's phone number?, maybe he/she can help me with my vision problems, lol...hugs for both of you                                                 ojo

PS, I do not know, either, how to upload pics, I wish I could share my doggy pic with you, he saved my life one time, he was the only one who knew I was so sick, even before I noticied it, I got hemolitic anemia, nine days in the ICU  and three more days in the hospital, I celebrated my birthday in the ICU, no knowing it I was going to make it out alive, but guess what?, I'm still here, beaten up, but, still kicking, lol

Thanks everybody for your well wishes :)
Another thread reminded me I should updated this.

Olivia had her 3 month follow up visit last week and is doing great !
She is back to chasing chipmunks and squirrels and going about the rest of her usual antics. Her lenses have settled and the only thing scarred is my wallet :o
She will have a 6 month visit and will then be only yearly to monitor for glaucoma.
