11 yr mini schnauzer with diabetes - is it her time?
My 11 yr mini schnauzer Lucy has had diabetes about 2 yrs now She has been acting very strange at night.
We block off part of our room w cardboard so she does not have any accidents by wetting or bumping into things. Yes she is also blind.
However once in her crate for bed she awakens us through the night by scratching the cardboard constantly. Is she in pain or is this just part of old age?
She eventually stops after we have yelled or let her out or she just gets tired. During the day she sleeps a lot and her diabetes seems under control. Although I don't test it. We never get a good nights sleep anymore driving us crazy she still eats drinks sleeps and takes walks daily. Please help is it her time soon?
We spent a lot of money already on special food and insulin and don't believe in keeping her around if her quality if life is impaired.
