Day 5

Today marks day five that Hunter has been on Lysodren. He’s tolerated the pill so far and we haven’t seen any difference in his behavior.

I’m very anxious to get Hunter regulated. I read yesterday about a family whose dog just had diabetes. They finally got him regulated and in less than a year he stopped eating and became extremely depressed. In the end, they finally made the decision to put him to rest. I pray that I don’t have to make that decision.

Three years ago, we made the decision to let our cat, Tut, go. Tut was 14 ½ years old. He had stopped eating and drinking water. It was a very hard decision, but we didn’t want to see him suffer anymore. If the same was happening to Hunter, due to old age, I wouldn’t hesitate to let him go. However, Hunter is sick due to an illness and we feel we must do everything we can to help him get better. We’re all praying that we can get him back to feeling as close to normal as possible.

He’s still a fighter and we’re all here fighting right along with him.
