Poor Chuck

Chuck has doggie diabetes.

Chuck (2)

Normal glucose is 60-110 and his was 592. He got his first insulin injection at the vet Monday and I will be the shot giver from now on. Two injections down and many to go. He doesn’t seem to mind, but I was really nervous for that first one.

He already feels much better.

Chuck 4

I have a new appreciation for nurses.



  1. Poor baby... Keep him healthy so he can be a happy pup...

  2. So sorry to hear about Chuck, but he sure is cute! I'm sure he'll do just fine.....

  3. Aw, what a sweetie! Hope he continues to do better with the shots.

  4. Poor Chuck! We do what we can to make them feel better. He looks like a real trooper.

  5. Chuck is lucky to have you as his human to take care of him, not everyone would be able to do that. I had a cockatiel (bird) that I had to give shots in his chest once a day for about a week, it was scary, but it is amazing what we can do when it comes to our pets.

  6. Chuck is lucky to have someone who loves him enough to give him shots. He's such a cutie!

  7. It's good you found out what was ailing him. Shots are hard for pets, he's such a cutie pie.
