Hi

I'm a proud parent to two cats, and one 8 month old puppy. One of my cats is diabetic and has been for 4 years my husband and I have to inject insulin twice a day and check her levels often. I do have a question regarding my puppy, we saved him and were told he's a husky mix, but we don't know with what. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas?

Thanks

I tried posting this before and since I am new I apologize if it's posted twice

Welcome to pets.ca, jmurray7!!

I also have a diabetic cat (just turned 19 and he's had diabetes for 9 years). It can be challenging but also extremely rewarding to have a special needs pet.

Yer pup sure is a cutie! Got any pics of the rest of your furry family?

Welcome to the board!

Could be a few breeds in there. Possibly Lab, and although the shape of the head is all wrong the white zones above the eyes look a bit Rottweillerish.

I should add both cats were adopted from the local humane society, and Cooper I got from an ad online that was going to bring him to the humane society if he wasn't sold when he was 10 weeks old.

I was actually thinking about getting DNA testing so that I can figure it out, and also what kind of health problems I can prevent in the future.....I was also trying to figure out what his adult size would be.
