After seeing her drink an exceptional amount of water everyday, I knew that we had to get her into the vet. They did a few tests, and they were able to determine pretty quickly that diabetes was the cause. Although it was nice to have answers, it's disheartening to know that she will have to deal with this for the rest of her life. Our life will now consist of twice daily insulin shots, a special diet, and monitoring of her behavior so her levels don't dip too low. It will be a challenge, it will be frustrating, but she is worth it.

I know this must seem really silly, especially to those who don't have pets, but our pets are like family. And just like family, I want to make sure that all of our pets are healthy and happy.
Please send us all good thoughts!
