The food your pet eats plays an important role in overall health and well-being. Balanced nutrition is an essential part of an active, healthy lifestyle. When your dog or cat has diabetes, it’s even more important to feed the right food consistently. Feeding a veterinarian-recommended food with a consistent nutrient profile will help keep your pet's metabolism level stable so he can stay healthy. For accurate diagnosis and treatment options, always consult your veterinarian and ask them to recommend the best food for your cat or dog's diabetes.

What to do if you need to reach us:
It's a perfectly ordinary day, night... an illness, an accident, or____ . None of us want to think about our own death but what will happen to your pet(s) if you don't make it home?
In the confusion that accompanies a person’s unexpected illness, accident, or death, pets may be overlooked. In some cases, pets are discovered in the person’s home days after the tragedy. To prevent this from happening to your pet, take these simple precautions:
Pioneer Animal Hospital first shared this story with you last summer from KOIN6.
Remember, since pets are considered as property by the law, you need to treat your pets as such when you make out a will. Just as you might bequeath your car or house to a specific relative or friend, you need to do the same for any pets that need to be taken care of.
Be specific but simple: “I leave my dog Happy to my friend Jane Doe.” If you decide to set up a revocable living trust before your death, the instructions are the same, although it’s your choice on whether the caretaker and trustee are the same person (see below).
You should always discuss such arrangements with the person in question beforehand. Just as you should never buy a pet as a gift for someone who isn’t expecting it, you shouldn’t make your beloved dog an unwanted surprise after your funeral. LIVING WILL _ADVANCE DIRECTIVE DOWNLOAD
Be sure to review and update these documents regularly. Circumstances change, so it’s a good idea to take a look at your will or trust annually. Maybe the friend you wanted to take care of your dog moved far away, or changed their mind about the responsibility. Perhaps the pets you originally designated have themselves passed on, and you have to specify new ones. You may have experienced a change in financial circumstances, good or bad, so you need to increase or decrease the money bequeathed.
Remember, if you designate an amount of money to care for your dog to a specific person but do not also specify that your dog still needs to be alive, courts will probably rule that they get the money anyway.
It is possible, by the way, to avoid any problems with the money being misused by leaving it to your veterinarian instead, with a specific written agreement on how much they will get and what treatment they are expected to provide in exchange. Again, plan ahead and discuss it with your vet well in advance of the need.
