Re: My Walmart quit selling relion syringes

We had the same thing happen at our Walmart in FL. They told me they no longer carried the syringes, so I asked them if they would special order 4 boxes and they did.

Re: Safe Joint Supplements

You may want to try Methyl B-12 for diabetic neuropathy. Others have had very good results with back leg weakness. The GNC brand doesn't have sucrose or any sugars in it. The dosage is .67mcg per...

Re: Urine Test Strips

I know one dog that is using this and it sticks to his side. You have to change it every ten days and then it takes about 12 hours to activate before you can check glucose.

Re: Switching insulin

Vetsulin is a 70/30 and I couldn't get her regulated on it, so I went from Vetsulin to Novolin N.

If his glucose is fairly stable and he's just having a food spike, I wouldn't change.

Re: Cannot Get Ollie under Control

Hello!:)

Raysaint and Mike are correct, blood glucose monitoring is much more accurate than the urine strips and a 12 hour feeding and dosage schedule may be very helpful in regulation.

My mom and her chihuahua, Louie, lived with me for about 12 years. After mom passed away, Louie got depressed and I thought I was going to lose him. He wasn't eating real well and he would cry a lot....

Re: Regulated but losing hair

With home cooking, it's important to have a vitamin supplement. Lots of people with sugar babies are using Nupro Gold. Daisy takes Animal Essentials.

Re: Correct Cansulin dose

Daisy has a very strange digestive system. Dry food will digest slower than wet so I use a combination of both so the insulin can work with the food and flatten out her curve. I measure all her food...

Re: Dog food

If he's 38lbs he needs between 920-1100 calories per day or around 460 to 550 (depending on activity level and age) calories per meal. One cup of boneless, skinless chicken breast (140 grams) is...

Re: Frustrated with food spikes

I mush up all her food in a food processor with a little water, then soak about 11g of kibble until it's mushy. I put it in the microwave with water for about 20 seconds. Daisy is on Novolin N, so...

Re: Frustrated with food spikes

When Daisy was spiking several hundred points after eating, I soaked a portion of her kibble to flatten out her curve. The food was hitting her system, it wasn't digesting. Adding water and soaking...

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: 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...
