Re: New here

I initially used the AlphaTrak2 but found the strips to be very expensive. I went with the PetTest and the One Touch Ultra 2 (Walmart). I got 200 unistrips off eBay for I think about $30. I tested it...

Re: Water drinking tips/tricks?

I put a few little pieces of chicken in Daisy's water bowl and fill it about 1/4 of the way up. She drinks all the water to get to the chicken.

Re: New to all this.

The lancer that comes with some of the meters don't seem to penetrate very well so I use the ReliOn lancer with 26 gauge lancets on Daisy's ear. I just have to make sure her ear is nice and warm.

Re: Diabetic dog peeing in the house

Since her blood sugar is okay she may need another round or a different round of antibiotics. Most diabetic dogs need a 21 day round of antibiotics rather than the regular 14 day regime.

Re: Your dog's diet, insulin, and meter used

Yes, a pasta noodle. The 11-12 noodle is because she needs a carb snack midway through until her next insulin injection. Keeps her fasting nice. If she doesn't get her noodle, her fasting will be in...

Re: Weird BG curve

When Daisy's curve looked like that I realized her food was not keeping up with her insulin and soaked a little kibble at mealtime, ran another curve and adjusted her soaked kibble up or down,...

Re: Tricks to get them to eat

Daisy is a chow hound and has been known to dine on worms off the driveway so I don't have to worry about her not eating.

But I have heard low sodium chicken broth or a little parmesan cheese...

Re: Help Very High Glucose

Be careful with the R, Daisy is 19lbs and can only take about 1/4 unit. 1/2 unit drops her so fast and so far down, it scares me. They're just so little.

Looking at her past curves, I'm wondering...

Re: Help with Mochi

No, no rx. I looked for the cortisone free at all the pet stores and they only carried the one with cortisone, so I ordered off of Chewy.com. It came in 2 days.

Re: Help with Mochi

Daisy runs up and down the fence with the neighbor dogs and due to us living in FL, gets sand in her ears. I check her ears and if they're red and irritated, I use Zymox without cortisone. I'm sure...

Re: ? Thoughts "Focusing On Nadir" to Decrease Fasting BG??

I know a lot of people don't like to mess with their dogs food, but in our journey I've noticed that I can change her bowl curve to a mountain curve just by adding a few grams of kibble. Quinoa and...

Re: when do you decide to get another dog?

Re: when do you decide to get another dog?

My mom and her little chihuahua, Louie, lived with me since Louie was about 2. When my mom passed away in 2014, it was me and Louie and we were both grieving horribly. In 2016 at the age of 16, Louie...

Re: Advice appreciated:VETSULIN Trial To Start On Suzie

I can understand why you do that and how it works for her. There have been times when I give 1/4 unit at 10p and all is well.

Re: Struggling with high fastings and short duration of effect of insulin

When Daisy had swings like that I gave her a little carb snack about 1/2 hour before her lowest number. When I gave her protein as a snack it shot her through the roof.

Re: Struggling with high fastings and short duration of effect of insulin

Daisy is a mini and I found that she can only have about 19-21 grams of carbs per meal. She had fatty lumps and her triglyceride level was through the roof. She's on a very low fat diet and her lumps...

Re: Advice appreciated:VETSULIN Trial To Start On Suzie

There are two things I noticed with Daisy:
She had a high fasting but nadir was good, so I didn't want to give her any more N. I would give her 1/4 unit of R along with her N and it brought her...

Re: Recommended food?

I've heard good things about the Nulo Cod and Lentils. Daisy can't have that many carbs so I have to home cook for her with very little kibble.
