We were told by two vets that there was nothing that could be done except two shots of Insulin every day and a special diet for our 1/2 King Charles, 1/2 Griffon. It tore us up but no one offered any alternative since we were told he would suffer from this the rest of his life and had to eat within 10 minutes of each shot. He sometimes was fincky about eating and the last two weeks he had not eaten anything and lost 6 pounds in a week. That is when the vet told us he had either to be hospitalized to regulate how much insulin and have blood checks every 2 weeks to be sure it was correct. We are on social security and could not afford the $1200 hospital bill and regular vet visits and the $70 bottles of insulin. I was just wondering if puting him down was the only solution. I know nothing can be done now, but would like to have the information in case someone else had this problem.

Dear Leon,

You made the right decision. Juvenile diabetes is very difficult to treat and is a lifetime commitment. Type II diabetes can be managed much easier using a holistic approach.

Best regards, Dr. Char
