Re: Ketones in Urine - Everything else Normal

I have the Bayer Keto-Diastix strips and test regularly. I just bought a new bottle. They show everything's ok.

Is there something made specifically for dogs that would test better?

One more quick question - how much is Humulin N and where do you purchase it at?

I know the Novolin N is at Wal-Mart.

Re: Help! Switching from Novilin N to Vetsulin

Re: Insulin

His BG is 420 at 8:45pm. He is acting very tired. It is a little lower in general. I did knock down his insulin to 12.5 today from 13.

Re: Insulin

I have had his thyroid checked but it is a while ago. I will request checking it again.

Yukon weighs 30 pounds. I am wondering if it is too much as well.
