I am so happy to report that Zeke turned 15 on Dec. 1, 2011. He is really doing well overall. We recently took Zeke to his vet for a routine glucose check. He was high at 400 so we increased his NPH to 15 frm 14. A few weeks later his vet checked his glucose level. It was 168 and his vet was happy with it so we will keep him at 15 units and check him in another month or so.
Zeke was diagnosed in July 2007. At the time I was very worried and thought his lifespan would be shortened. By with the excellent veterinary care and medications he has received he is living a full and normal life by dog standards.
