    Laura, I think I deleted the links I was reading when Yeller was diagnosed, but I did a google search for "canine diabetes forums" and a few popped up that were very, very helpful - right down to the differences between the insulin brands and nutrition. I learned a lot on them.

    I'll see I still have any at home to put here later. Tell them to hang in there - the first few days are rough, very rough.

    only experiences i have with people with labs and diabetes have not been good ones.
    i had another friend that's lab was dx'd around the same time as yeller and she lost him 2 weeks ago.
    there is a good site; i think i might have it on my f/b account; if i still do, i'll email you over there with it .

    Diesel was dx 2.5 years ago and is fine. I did not find a lot of particularly useful info on the web for my situation - a young otherwise healthy dog. The Bark has a really great article on their site.

    The first few days/weeks is rough and the dog is really SICK until the dosage is figured out and he is regulated. Once regulated the change is amazing. We spent a lot of time at the vet. I just left him there a few times all day. They were quite committed to helping get him set. We have not had any issues in a very, very long time. He is on a very strict diet and his shots are strictly timed.

    Laura, I have a puppy buyer on my list that I have spoken with extensively. He has a 12 yr old Lab with diabetes and he is very knowledgeable. His vet told him they would never be able to give his dog enough insulin to work for her. He did his own research and got her on the needed amount and she has been doing great for about 3 years. He even tests her blood sugar at home. If you want his contact info he is more than willing to help.

    If so email me and I will put you in touch with him. He is a great guy.
