JJ is a 6 year old min. pin who is the love of my life. On Friday June 16th Jj was diagnosed with Diabetes. JJ has lost his eye site completely due to the diisease. Unknown to me Cataracks came on quickly due to his glucose level being so high for at least 30 days or more.
I took him to the vet and was given a prescription for insulin. I was told to give him 1.5 units twice daily. Due to my own ignorance I overdosed him all weekend. On Sunday night my baby started having major seizures over and over and actually died in my arms at least once.
All night long I cried out to God to please spare him as he is all I have in this world begged God to take me instead as my roommate would take care of him. JJ lost all control over his bowels and bladder and gave the death howl 3 times
Something told me to check his sugar and it was so low it would not even read. I always have honey and syrup in the house so I just kept pouring it in his mouth and rubbing his gums with it.
By doing this I was able to keep him alive until the morning when the vets office opened. I took him to Bairds Animal Hospital here in Lumberton, NC where we live. When Dr Michael Deese came in he took one look at him and knew it was a rush for time. I told Dr. Deese that I did not have any money but begged him to save my dog for me. Dr. Deese stated that this was a true emergency and told his tech Shawna to get him and take him to the back and get an IV in him.
JJ was in very critical condition and was knocking on deaths door very loudly. When i say that baby was a fighter he was a true fighter, He was not ready to leave his mamma yet. The picture below is on Tuesday, and was after he had had a seizure. This was during my visit to him. Over the course of the next couple of days he had a few more seizures, but was eventually not having them anymore. JJ came home on Friday, thanks to God most of all and a true God sent man by the name of Dr. Michael Deese and his staff at Bairds animal hospital.
Bairds animal hospital is by far the best vet I have ever used. My wife and I have 5 rescues and other babies, so were using the vets a lot. From the time you walk in you feel at ease. The ladies up front are just wonderful..The doctors are some of the vets I have ever use. Iv also used there groomer. she is the best groomer we have used. She treats your babies just as you would treat them. Too make a long story short Bairds is one of the best vets I have ever used...
