Toodles started having problems on Sunday--it became evident that this was going to be a problem by Monday. We are trying to determine whether this is a seizure-related problem or not. Right now,...

Re: Mik: 13 yr old Shih-Tzu

Bob,

If you believe in "paying one's due", I think you've "paid" more than your share to get to this point!

Hoping this trend will become a habit! :)

Re: meal pattern-diet with vetsulin

Welcome Teri and Buster!

Often there's weight loss at the time of diagnosis--sometimes quite a bit of weight has been lost. The good news is that as Buster gets better blood glucose...

Re: Welcome Bailey and Tina!

Welcome to you both!

Jenny (Buddy) used Science Diet Lite in cans and had good results with it. I believe we have others here who use or have used it in dry.

Re: Help!! Sudden acute blindness

Welcome!

We'll try to help. When she was stabilized, were you getting much lower blood glucose numbers at that point? I'm asking because we need to know if there was a response to the insulin or...

Re: Buddy's 2nd Curve

When you did the curve you posted, Buddy was getting 1 1/2 cups of W/D dry and 1/3 can of Evo; his numbers were very good--when did you make the change to 1 cup of W/D and 1/2 can of Evo at each...

Re: Sable's road to regulation!

I would not mix the two insulins. They are different species, different profiles, and different strengths.

I do know some people who use beef or pork insulin for their basal and fast or rapid...

Re: Mik: 13 yr old Shih-Tzu

Bob,

From the Google pages, it sure looks like while everyone else calls them k/cal, we just call them calories.

Your goal was and is to put more weight on Mik, so more food would be in order. ...

Sometimes the things we worry about most thankfully don't happen like we imagine they will.

Re: Greyson - Now I'm only intermittently mildly terrified!
