Maggie is blind from cataracts, the result of unregulated diabetes that was just diagnosed in a local shelter.
Maggie was originally from a home where there were too many other animals, and as a result, she has a number of conditions that were never treated and now require immediate medical care. Maggie not only has to get her diabetes under control, but we will also be addressing her dry eye, cherry eye, luxating patellas and cataracts. Our priority is to work on her blood sugar levels.
Diabetic dogs are superheroes, requiring insulin daily and special food – and with a great vet in your corner, the condition is manageable. The process of getting her regulated can be pricey, though, and Maggie will require frequent vet visits and multiple blood tests over several weeks, possibly months, to ensure the insulin we put her on is working. She will also require regular monitoring as we work through her remaining challenges. Diabetic dogs are dealt a bad hand, but these pups are often the most grateful ones in the pack because they appreciate so much that they got a second chance.
Please, help us show Maggie that her condition will not cast a shadow on an otherwise wonderful dog. We know from past diabetic cases that at least $2000 is a reasonable expectation as we work to get her healthy and regulated. If you are able to donate anything toward her initial care or send a gift to Maggie from her wishlist, we know this sweet face would appreciate it. Thank you for always believing in our mission and our efforts. Your support of our seniors makes so much difference.
