Diabetes, Schmiabetes! Sugar doesn’t scare us!


Gladys joined Lionel’s Legacy on June 23, 2021, as an owner surrendered from Ventura County. After a vet check discovered mammary masses, a hernia, cataracts, poor dental health, and diabetes, we knew we had our work cut out for us. Thankfully, we also knew the perfect forever foster family to place her with, The Noll Family!

Here’s her update!
“Gladys (who we call her FiFi) was originally hospice, but hospice does not always mean there is no life left to live. Sometimes it means they need a little (or a lot) of TLC. She was very underweight when we got her 11.6 lbs. and now at last count she weighed 17.4 lbs! Diabetes, when not correctly managed, wreaks havoc on the body. We are happy to announce that she is now stable! She had multiple mammary tumors removed and has a malformed front paw that makes it a little hard for her to walk at times but she still insists on going on her morning walk. She is one spunky little girl.”
