Elvis, a diabetic dachshund in Davenport, IA

May 18, 2011--It appears Elvis will be safe. I have seen emails between C2CDR and the owner of the K9Diabetes.com site. Elvis has the offer of an experienced foster home, and there are offers of insulin and hometesting and other diabetic supplies for him. C2CDR is moving quickly to get Elvis situated so that he can start insulin. Quick control of BG levels is crucial for dogs because they can, and often do, go permanently blind from uncontrolled diabetes. ********************************************************************************* May 17, 2011--An email from Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue (C2CDR) that started on Sunday, May 15:
Hello, This is Elvis. He is a 6-year-old dachshund. He weighs 20lbs. He is great with other dogs, cats, and kids. He loves meeting new people and doesn't know a stranger. His owners just found out yesterday he has diabetes. His blood sugar was at 347. He is healthy otherwise but they do not feel comfortable giving him insulin shots. We need to find him a home asap! Please contact me if anyone can help. Such a sweet dog deserves a chance at life! He is located in Davenport, Iowa. Thanks, Chrissa Lowe Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue - Iowa www.c2cdr.org chrissaandtravis @hotmail.com (remove space)
I also have the email and phone number for another person on this email chain.
