Bubby was a sweet boy for the vet. He was terribly thin at 11 lb 2.5 oz (less than when he came to us!) and didn't flinch at getting his temperature checked, which was down to 96. He tested negative for FeLV, but the chemistry panel revealed he was in diabetic ketoacidosis and had a blood sugar level of 580.

He might have made it through the night with intensive treatment, but his quality of life would be greatly diminished. We said our goodbyes and Vogon and Laurel waited in the waiting room while I stayed with him as he was euthanized. He was a good boy to the end.
