Re: urinalysis vs pricking

Hi

Urine testing is helpful but not always as easy to interpret. You can get an idea on whether it is high or low but not how high or low.

Re: Inject-ease Users: Please describe your technique

Buddy did not have much meat on his bones so I gently tugged one of his curls to lift the skin a little. Most of the time I used the inject ease it was around the scruff area. As for settings the...

Re: Allergy Meds

This is from an Aussie site so some names may differ but the dosage for the Chlorpheniramine can vary quite a bit.

Re: Franklin has diabetes

Hi Jane

Sorry to see you and Franklin over here. Noticed an injection at 11am, just wondering if you are feeding and injecting 12 hours apart. Remind me what you are feeding??

Home testing is great. Just because you test at home doesn't mean you can't get instructions from the vet. If you can learn to test then you could go back to the vet with the numbers and let him/her...

Re: Geoff: A question about meter problem

My Buddy would drop every vet visit. He could drop 5-6 (100) or more. I always made sure he got an extra treat/food after a visit.
