Re: Lily is starting insulin!

Lily is starting to feel better..I think. She has had some good days here and I think the insulin is working. Her new Trilostane also came Friday and I must say it has been a breeze to get the...

Re: Lily is starting insulin!

Just got a BG on her and it was 299. It was also time for her insulin.

At the rate we are wasting strips trying to get blood to come out, I don't think we will be able to test often. I think I...

Re: Insulin storage...

I also read last night that Humalin N does not have to be refrigerated after opening as long as it is kept under 86 degrees. Which our house is rarely above 76 in summer and 64 in the winter.

So how do you know if you get the insulin actually in the body? We are only giving her one unit. It is so little. We are using 3/10 cc short needles 30 gauge. We gave her the first shot and there...

Re: Cara - Need a shoulder!

So glad the surgery worked. I asked our vet about it and he didn't think it would help our case. Plus it is out of our price range at $2000 an eye.

Re: Lily now Questioning diabetes

I guess I show explain that the symptoms came on while we were doing 10mg. of Trilostane once a day. She hasn't had a dose of Trilostane since Sat. Does that make sense now for his thoughts of why...
