Me and my Baby- The Cockapoo

Me and My baby Cockapoo
My Cockapoo Ari was diagnosed with doggie diabetes about two months ago he was 10 years old, he has always been very active and playful like a puppy his whole life.
Recently we had noticed he had been more week, tired and slept most of the day.
We travel often and take him to a local private kennel, he is such a love bug and they let him sleep on their bed with them.
One day when we came to pick him up the owner of the kennel said to us that Ari had been acting "abnormal to his personality" and that it may be Diabetes
We took him immediately to the vet the next day and they diagnosed him with diabetes.
I have never heard of diabetes in a dog before, so this was a shock to me.
I had my cute Cockapoo for as long as I could remember, since I was 4 (I am 14 now) and he had always been there for me.
The veterinary said that we would have to give him a shot twice a day, and he could live a normal happy, healthy life with diabetes.
He also said it was genetics that gave him this disease, not weight or exercise that are also common factors.
Dogs with poodle blood or have Bichon Frises blood are also susceptible but Diabetes can affect any breed.
After giving him two shots a day for a week he is back to his normal puppy aptitude, and after two months looks like nothing is wrong. if your dog is diagnosed with Canine Diabetes
, dont freak out because you and your dog can survive this disease. Good luck hope this will help a lot of Poodle Owners.
