Re: Update on Roscoe

I found that I need to give Shelby more in the evening also. She gets 11 in the morning and 11.5 in the evening.
It sort of makes sense if you think about the fact that activity lowers BG...

Re: Shelby & Food Questions

Re: Shelby & Food Questions

Here are a few of her on vacation. I am so glad we got to do it. BY the way, she normally hates water as far as baths and water hoses and kiddie pools, but she did always take off swimming in the...

Re: Shelby & Food Questions

Re: Shelby & Food Questions

Thanks Craig.

I had compared my Confirm with the vet's Alphatrak before and I know the results were right in line with what you and others had posted back then. So I hope the Prime is similar. As...
