Researchers working in the Immunology Laboratory for Kidney Transplants at the University of California Davis have kept a diabetic dog off of insulin for three years. The researchers removed the beagle's pancreas to give it diabetes, then injected it with healthy islet cells ten days later. The dog has been designated with a number rather than a name to prevent the lab technicians from becoming emotionally attached.

Common symptoms to look for are very similar to those found in humans: increased thirst, urination, and weight loss.
