Backus, Meydam and Prout advise owners not to panic if their dog is diagnosed with diabetes. Treatment is possible and, with strides in diabetes research, should become easier. Owners of diabetic dogs need to be consistent with insulin injections, feeding times and daily exercise. "There have been times I was happily chatting at a neighbor's house, and I've suddenly leaped to my feet, realizing I've got to go home and give my dog her shot," Backus said. Such dedication in care can restore good health to a beloved dog. "Targa has done amazingly well with treatment," she said. "It has been really rewarding to see her improve and get back her zest for life."

Very good information. Our dog Pepper received her first shots today. We hope she will have many more great years with us now that we know what is wrong with her.
