Would You Care For A Diabetic Pet?
Yes, animals get diabetes. Both dogs and cats. Did you know that? Given the proper care, a diabetic animal can live an almost normal lifespan.
If you had a pet that was diagnosed with Diabetes, would you be willing to take the extra care of it that it needed. The extra care would include extra trips to the vet's office for tests, giving insulin injections twice a day, and monitoring their quality of life. There will be a time, when the quality of life for your poor pet isn't good anymore, but you will know when that time comes.
We don't "euthanize" diabetic people, so why do it to an animal if their life is still good?
If money was no object, of course I would! I did. I had a cat that I got when she was a kitten, and she was later diagnosed with Diabetes. I chose to give her the extra care. My boyfriend at the time thought I was nuts.
Would you take the extra care of a diabetic pet if it happened to you?
The Love Is Worth It
The love that you get from your pet for a few extra years is well worth the cost of taking care of it.
Thanks for visiting this lens. I hope you put your "2 cents worth" in.
