Re: Bogie - miniature schnauzer

Dawn,

That is great news about Bogie!:) I haven't updated our thread but Bo is doing pretty well considering his blindness. In fact, as others posted, they do tend to catch on and use the other...

Re: Sudden development of Cataracts due to diabetes

I have made no "bones" about being very upset when my dog went completely blind in a week around the first of the year.:( The worst part was I thought he was a candidate for cataract surgery because...

Re: Mini-Me's B/G going crazy & still waiting for test results!

Yes, totally agree, a short acting insulin should just be used on occasion because of high bg due to stress, or meds or food spike or Levemir running out of potency. We look at the Levemir as the...

Re: Mini-Me's B/G going crazy

Jeanne, I looked at my bottle (opened 2/23) and no bubbles but your new bottle maybe was shaken in shipping? Our last vial was dated 1/3, so I calculated we got 7 weeks but I'm pretty sure the bg's...

Re: Mini-Me's B/G going crazy & still waiting for test results!

Oh, don't misunderstand about the food/dose issue! We do one thing at a time and the forum taught me that rule!! If you have just upped the dose to 10 1/2, then let that work a few days. If it gets...

Re: Mini-Me's B/G going crazy & still waiting for test results!

Re: Mini-Me's B/G going crazy & still waiting for test results!

Jeanne good plan on the 10 1/2 units, then go up if needed. We are trying to increase Bo's weight and vet said to up his food amount by 1/2 cup each meal. I already know we will have to raise the...

Re: Mini-Me's B/G going crazy & still waiting for test results!

Jeanne,
I saw your post that you raised the dose of Levemir by a unit from one meal to the next? What the others say about infection and meds having an effect on the bgs is true, so I would be...

Re: Blindness?

Hi Beth,

Smile How long has your dog lived with diabetes? Update!

Good to see the big numbers as we're less than a year into it. Actually, the diabetes diagnosis has not been as hard for us to deal with (after getting some regulation) as the sudden blindness. Bo's...

Re: Mini-Me's B/G going crazy & still waiting for test results!

Way to go, the numbers do look pretty good! We get some mid 300's too, usually due to the meal spike and before the Levemir kicks in, as we don't get the full 12 hours between shots. Keep us posted,...

Re: Bo - mini schnauzer on Levemir

I can hold off the food increase for sure, just not sure I want to deprive him of his little walk. Maybe a test before and about 30 minutes after to see how it goes? Oh, I have to fess up on the 309...

Re: Bo - mini schnauzer on Levemir

Thanks Holli. I have created a monster with the Kong toy, he's now looking for it all over the house like an addict! But yes, I did try the leash a few times and need to revisit that technique. BTW,...

Barb, good suggestion. I have been trying to teach left and right verbal commands inside with the treats, but outside no, duh. I guess because we go out late or early, I just push or steer him to go...

Re: Bo - mini schnauzer on Levemir
