Customer Question

Diabetic 13 year old west highland terrier life expectancy.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. I'm sorry the terrier has that. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the terrier's name?
Customer: Blarney. We have had him to the vet and he is on 4 units of insulin twice a day. We found out about this 2 months ago but his glucose is not dropping.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Blarney?
Customer: No.
