Hi Mogs, @Critter Mom, I was reading Saoirse's profile and a few things jumped out at me. At one time you mentioned her coughing. Susie does this too. You think it could be asthma? Also, her coat is not good. She has the dander and some bald type spots on her back near her tail, underneath her tail and what seems to be around her ears over her eyes. She also has some red spots on her belly and does seem to groom that area a lot. Could all these factors be due to diabetes and maybe asthma? I think I need to get her in for another senior panel blood/urine test. It has been two months. What do you think and how often should I have her blood checked at the vet with this diabetes diagnosis. Thank you for any advice. Saoirse was very beautiful. If anyone else is or has experienced these symptoms please let me know.
