    Angel harnesses or a homemade version can help with blindness (its like an angle halo that extends out so that it hits the wall before the dog does.
    Has the dog received antibiotics for infections?
    There are a few funds that you can apply to for medical bills - maybe you can talk to a rescue about local resources that might help with insulin

    Yes, I've seen the harnesses.. but I think it would inhibit him from drinking water which he drinks a lot of. I of course get him on medication at the first sign of any infection, be it urinary or ear infection. These past 3 months have really just been cycle after cycle of meds. I think he is spending more days taking anti-biotics than not lately. I am luckily able to afford it, it's just eating away at my savings and becoming a huge expense each month.

    I spent a lot of time crying yesterday just thinking about letting him go. I am rationalizing it more, coming to better terms with it. I watched him for a bit last night and his tummy was gurgling, he kept changing positions to lie in, so I believe he is in discomfort. I will go soon. Maybe Monday.

    You're doing the kindest thing. If he's blind, looking like he's in discomfort and you're waking to find him in a little pool of urine then, unfortunately, it is the right time.

    I went through the same thing 2 weeks ago having to put my own dog to sleep so I very much feel your pain.
