Get Organized!

The most important part of having a special needs pet or family member is staying organized. There are days where I can’t remember whether or not I’ve given Beignet her insulin. Our syringe organizer seen above is actually sold as a lip gloss organizer. Each Sunday I pre-fill Beignets 3x/day metoclopramide syringes and then put 2 insulin syringes per day as well as 2 empty syringes for her pentoxyfiline since those can’t be pre-filled. This way I never have to guess whether or not I gave a shot or med. The easier you make things for yourself, the less stressed you are! If only organizing Bennie’s eye meds was as easy!

Bennie switched from Novolin N to Humalin N about 2 weeks ago thanks to a generous donation of Humalin N from a diabetic patient! Although both are NPH insulin, I am seeing so much improvement on Humalin N so far.

The bad news is that on Saturday night Bennie had to go to the ER Vet after coming inside with her right eye super swollen again😭. We were so thankful that Dr. Saunders from PetStar where she often medical day boards was doing an ER shift. He saw her eye when she was with them during her episode a few weeks ago. Her eye doctor let us know today she can’t wait until her scheduled appointment 8/21/19 so looks like I’m going to have to take off work to take her this week. It’s crazy that it’s happened again. This poor girl can’t catch a break! We would gladly take any volunteers that want to come give her around the clock Benadryl! We can’t do the suspension at all but getting a chewable in her… Let’s just say it’s not fun!

That’s our update! Hope everyone has a great week! Keep sharing our site! The more people we can get to subscribe, the more opportunities we have for earning money to help pay all these vet bills!

I'm a wiener dog obsessed mom of Beignet (long haired dark red brindle) and Andouille Sausage (short hair red brindle) as well as Boudin the cat. When I'm not spending my time caring for my dachshund divas and crazy cat, I'm also a general pediatrician. My background is therefore in the care of little humans and not animals. I am not a veterinarian so am therefore not an expert on animal medical care. This blog is intended to chronicle Beignet's battle mainly with diabetes, but also chronic pancreatitis and suspected jejunal inflammatory bowel disease. We hope to help others, but you should always speak with your veterinarian before making any changes to your pet's care. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
