Nevada SPCA received a request from another rescue partner about Maisie and needing assistance with her care.
Maisie has been diagnosed with juvenile diabetes. While diabetes is a fairly common condition in dogs and cats, juvenile diabetes is very rare – reported to occur in only 1.5% of all diabetic dogs. Many dogs with juvenile diabetes frequently have other health issues – but aside from her small size Maisie has no other major health concerns and has had an extensive medical work up here at the shelter.
Like most diabetic dogs, Maisie will need lifelong treatment for her condition – and will require very frequent vet care, especially during the first year of her life as she grows, and her insulin needs change. During this time Maisie may need as frequent as monthly checkups and diagnostics with a veterinarian. Ideally once Maisie is an adult, she can be maintained as any other diabetic dog with twice daily insulin injections and dietary management.
