I hope you don't think this is silly or stupid


but I really need prayers for my diabetic dog. His sugar is going way too high, he's drinking gallons of water, and I'm scared to death to raise his insulin cause it's almost at the level it was last fall when he had seizures one after another and almost went into insulin shock.

My vet is stumped as his insulin has been adjusted a number of times, both up and down, and his diabetes seems to be out of control. I've been exercising him rigorously to try to burn up some of the sugar but don't know what else to do but pray for him.

I'm afraid if his insulin is raised he could start having seizures in the middle of the night when the vet is closed. I do keep a bottle of Karo syrup on the kitchen counter and a small bottle in the car, but am so afraid for him. He's only 8 yrs old and I'm afraid something will happen with this damn diabetes and he'll get really sick or worse.

So if you don't think this is a silly request, could you please pray for my little Nikko boy? He's so loving and trusting of me and is also one of God's creatures, and God entrusted him to my care.

Thanks,

least

Oh Least, I am sorry for Nikko and for you.

It's just so hard when our beloved pets are sick.

Prayers for Nikko.

Good Lord, Least!!! NO that is NOT stupid or silly!!! I'll pray for your little Nikko! I don't know what I would do without my puppy! (she's 8 BTW, but still my baby) She is my lifeline! And, my only "child", so, I totally understand!

You have had so much on you...I'm praying for you and your entire family, NIKKO included!

Prayers for you and Nikko both just offered to the universe. Nothing silly or stupid about that. I'm sorry Nikko and you are suffering from this.

love and prayers are coming to you and Nikko from me and from my sweet labrador, Daphne. If dogs can pray, that is? I choose to believe that they can!

I want so bad to stay sober not only for myself and my daughters but also to give my dogs the best possible life and proper care. If I were even half the person my dogs think I am I'd be close to a saint!

Please accept my deepest gratitude for praying for him and for understanding me. Dogs are wonderful beings. Their only fault is not living long enough.

So, how is little Nikko today? I hugged my puppy last night and said a prayer for you and him.
