Laurie Kimball, NE 11/16/2008 6:43:32 PM Our beagle, Romeo, was showing signs of excessive drinking, accidents, and weightloss. After a trip to the vet, and some blood work, his blood sugar level was 519! He now receives insulin twice daily, and since we now have it under control, we only have to check his urine every couple of days. It's scary to find out, but easy to manage and take care of. He's a happy guy. But the cost can add up with the insulin, needles, test strips and going to the vet every few months for blood work. But he's worth it!
