Cure for Dogs with Diabetes

Two little posts today instead of one big one! I think that’s a fair trade, don’t you?

There’s some exciting news coming out of Barcelona for humans and our canine companions alike! Trials have cured dogs of diabetes, with long term studies showing no relapses for up to 4 years thus far. You can see the article here, but the gist of it is that a series of injections over the course of a day has effected the genes having to do with diabetes, curing it in an array of dogs. Huzzah for science!
