We are planning to go back to Japan and my girl, Rita (10+ years), has to be in a crate more than 12 hours.
She is diabetic so we give her an insulin shot twice a day.
That by itself is a worry. On top of that, since she now completely hates a crate from her recent experiences (blood glucose tests) at the vet, she absolutely becomes out of mind when being placed in a crate.
We've been trying to re-train her, but she becomes so panic that she bit into the gate to cause some of her teeth completely chipped.
Do you have any good idea to make this trip easy for her??
We even thought of finding somebody who would take care of her and leaving her behind, but we don't believe not so many people can diligently give a shot twice a day like us who are working at uor home office.
