Customer Question
My dog is 12...

My dog is 12 years old and has diabetes. She is vomiting usually twice a day and pees with out informing us several times a day. What should I do to help her?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did 12 Years Old eat anything unusual?

She hasn't eaten anything unusual as far as I know.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about 12 Years Old?

Not that I can think of. She like to walk, she doesn't like to eat so momma has to feed her with a spoon, she hasn't loss any weight. I guess that is all I can think of.
