Maggie Mae came to us because a family was in crisis and needed help. Maggie is eight years old and experienced a sudden weight loss along with drinking a lot of water and having accidents in the house. Her owner took her to the veterinarian and there they discovered that she was diabetic. Her blood sugar on admission was in the 600’s! They immediately started working with her to try to get her weight loss and diet under control. After three days in the hospital and keeping her owner informed, they learned that he was in the hospital. Unfortunately, her owner’s condition meant that he would have to move to a long term care facility and no longer be able to care for Maggie. His adult daughter called Boston Terrier Rescue of Oklahoma for help. Typically, rescues are unable to take in dogs with complicated medical conditions, but I agreed to do what I could to get Maggie’s diabetes under control so she could be adopted by a loving family with some experience in this area. We have done further testing to manage her twice a day insulin dose and have her on a special diabetic diet. Maggie is a total delight! She is happy and wiggly and loves her toys. She has a lot of life left and a lot of love to give for the right family. She’s on medical hold until we feel that her diabetes is under control, but we are hoping to get her into a new home soon. Stay tuned!
