Max is a 4 year old Golden Cocker, who came to CAESSR in August 2017. Unfortunately, Max is diabetic and needs insulin injections twice a day. He may also loose his sight.
Max is a gentle little fella that came to our family through CAESSR.
He is only 4 years old and very eager to play run around. Unfortunately he has been diagnosed with diabetes which at present is still unstable.
We are working hard with local vets to tailor the best insulin treatment for Max based on his calories intake and level of activities. So far he had two multiple glucose tests and the dose of insulin was changed on both occasions but we are determined we will get this poor boy sorted. Overall his fructosamine level indicates good control and all vital organs are performing well but his eyesight has been affected and Max suffers with bilateral cataracts. Given his general health and young age he would be ideal candidate for eye surgery but it is rather costly procedure.
He also needs daily insulin, currently at 13 units twice a day, blood glucose testing, regular vet appointments to keep on top of his condition...so far through some lovely people associated with CAESSR and some dog lovers from UK Diabetic Dogs forum we were able to gather sufficient supply of insulin, syringes and pen cartridges to last for next couple of months but it is never ending expense and we would truly appreciate any form of help either towards insulin or potential operation.
This little boy deserves to be a happy loving dog, he brought a ray of sunshine to our home and he is well and truly loved by all
