I did not realize that his fierceness would make visits to the vet very difficult. Nor did I know that he would have a lot of health problems. He had a bad reaction to a rabies shot and developed an auto immune problem. They treated it with prednisalone for a long time and that caused him to get pancreatitis. They wouldn't examine him without sedating him. It's been hard.
Now the pancreatitis has caused diabetes, which was diagnosed recently. So, we are struggling to control his glucose (lots of blood tests and insulin). It's been a roller coaster. When he feels good I feel happy and hopeful. When he feels bad, I feel bad, too. It's so hard to know what to do. That is the hardest part.
