I could come close to giving jesse one shot a day with her one meal but the problem her body could dump sugar at times and she could remain higher with just one shot

With something like one week it could be a struggle to keep consistency over such a long time . It may promote testing less which could be risky

Since jesse diagnosis 9.5 years ago we have heard many diabetic breakthroughs and even some on trials that never seemed to come to market but what we have does work and it doesnt take allot of effort and dogs can live a normal happy lifespan with some limitations
