For many years I wrote a long list of things I would do to better myself in the coming year. I was ridiculous. Then I went through a phase when I skipped ‘New Years’ resolutions altogether. Recently I’ve tried to pick just one. I found if I made too long of a list I’d just feel guilty if I failed at them. Nobody is perfect after all. The last two years I’ve had the same resolution: Avoid sugar. Mostly I do pretty well. I choose this resolution because my father had diabetes and passed away due to the complications of diabetes. And now my mom has Alzheimer’s, which is very much a nutritional disease, decades in the making. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a zealot or anything. Nonetheless, I adhere to some simple practices. I try to eat bread or pasta no more than once a week. I rarely eat sweets other than fruit. And I try my best to eat food in its natural form which means I eat lots of veggies. Avoiding processed food and sugar will again be my resolution for myself this new year. Now that I’m on the other side of fifty, I’m sincerely trying to avoid the downfalls that plagued my parents. You say, Joi, three years in a row? I say, practice makes perfect!

I get some great questions from clients. They inspire me with article ideas and keep me in tune with diabetic pet owners. I enjoy interacting with our readers, and sometimes the questions are worthy of a newsletter. I bet if one person has this question and takes the time to write me, there are likely lots of folks with a similar question. Today’s question covers the common dog behavior of hiding their treats.

My dog has a habit of hiding bones around the house and having a bone dinner whenever she feels like it. Then she is finicky over her dinner. I usually half dose her when I am suspicious of this. Do bones (milk bones specifically) work like food? If I know she’s secretly eaten many hidden bones due to a “crumbs mess'” she has left behind, can I give a full dose of insulin?

"Questions from the diabetic pet owner are the fuel I use to keep myself educated on all things related to pet diabetes. I’ve had some incredible questions asked of me over the years, and quite a few that have made me do some research so I could understand it and then make it easy to understand for all of the diabetic pet owners that I encounter. Maybe this one can help you! Todays question is about checking your pets glucose curve and monitoring your pets diabetes."

Dr. Sutton, I am a little nervous about monitoring my furbaby’s diabetes. We just found out this past September that he is diabetic. We have him on insulin and he seems to be doing well at the level we are providing. I know treatment and monitoring thus far at my vet has been somewhat expensive and the pet starter kit seems very reasonable. How often do I need to check his levels? I am trying to determine if I should purchase more strips right away. Can the strips be purchased in retail stores or only by internet in case I choose to wait?
