Re: Dog Food Discussion

Daisy was regulated on the Stewbie fairly quickly, then 6 months later her numbers went crazy and I couldn't stabilize her for months. I took her off the Stewbie and started a simple ingredient diet,...

Re: Bad fastings for 2 weeks, why?

I know this may sound a little strange, but I noticed Daisy's fasting numbers starting to go up as well. I looked back on her log from Oct/Nov 17 and she did the same thing. Again, her curves showed...

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.

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...

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: 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.
