  • Rocket

    Rocket is a 6 and a half year old Yorkie Poodle mix. He was diagnosed as diabetic after a bout with pancreatitis about two years ago. He was a bit overweight then but has slimmed down and is doing OK after we got his insulin regulated. He still has blood sugar regulation problems and cycles up and down off and on , but does well most of the time. I test his blood sugar one day a week to keep track of how he's doing,and send the results to our vet via email. Just this past week he was diagnosed as having a "juvenile" cataract in his right eye. I was suspicious of the eye and wasn't surprised when it was confirmed. I'm not sure right now if I'm going to take him to an ophthalmologist and have it removed.
