Louie has two insulin shots a day to control his diabetes. A healthy diet and exercise is essential (he's not crazy about the exercise, who can blame him really) to keeping him balanced. He is happy and healthy...and very loved!!
Most diabetic dogs will go blind..(i still have a hard time excepting this) Basically what happens is the sugar from the diabetes collects behind the lens of his eye and causes a cloudiness or obstruction. If not treated, sugar builds up and cause tremendous pressure behind the lens and is very painful. Louie lost most his vision in about 4 months,when its bright out he still can make out some shadows, but mostly he relys on his wonderful sense of smell (and mom not moving the furniture). He still even tries to play ball on occasion and he impresses me with his "no fear" attitude. With your help I am hoping to correct Louie's vision (just one eye, his Doc says he only needs one good eye) with cataracts surgery..they go in remove the cataracts and "viola"..he will be back to bird watching and kitty chasing.
He is the peanut butter to my jelly , the cream in my coffee and the sugar in my tea...He is my little doggie soulmate and savior!
I am not asking for a hand out or your last dollar, I am asking to help a kind, sweet soul, see the birds and see his mom's face again.
No donation is too small. If a donation is not possible for you at this time, a few prayers and good thoughts are welcomed...we need all we can get. Either way we will be forever grateful and you will be forever in our hearts <3
