Hello and happy Friday, friends! It's time for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, and we'd love for you to join us! My amazing co-host Ellen of 15andmeowing came up with the first two fill-in statements, and I came up with the second two.
1. A veteran I would like to thank today is _________.
(This is why I don't enjoy vacations. I'm more of a staycation kind of person. I neither like traveling nor being away from my kitties and pup.)
(I do a lot of online shopping, but these days it seems like I'm on Chewy's site making purchases all the time. I think this is currently because a bunch of my fubabies' food and other goods keeps going out of stock, and so I stalk Chewy waiting for it to go back in stock when we need more. It seems like I've constantly got orders going with them lately. Hopefully my shopping with them can become more controlled again when, or if, the supply chain situation improves.)
We're still in the midst of our National Pet Diabetes Awareness Month tips. On this topic, yesterday we discussed observing your furbaby and knowing visible signs of illness. In addition to this, if your furbaby has been diagnosed with diabetes, consider monitoring their blood glucose at home. This is of course not always an option, depending on the furbaby and the situation. But, if it is possible, do discuss this with your veterinarian. Your veterinarian can help you learn how to safely check your kitty or pup’s glucose at home, which can be done simply by using a vein in your kitty or pup's ear and the same type of glucometer a human would use. If nothing else, it is of course advisable to take a diabetic furbaby to the vet for regular glucose and/or fructosamine checks, as well as frequent urinalyses, especially in the early stages of their diabetes treatment.
