Default Re: Mollie's Story

I'm confused why the vet reduced the insulin when the curves were good on 4 units. You usually don't reduce based on fructosamine.
4 units is a good dose based on his weight. Once he is regulated he'll probably gain a pound or two. My dog lost about 4 lbs but gained it all back.
Riley, 8 yr. old maltipoo, 25 lbs., diagnosed Feb 2017, taking thyroid meds, had pancreatitis and DKA mid March, eating Wellness Senior formula can food. NPH dosage now at 9.0 units Humulin N. Adding either pumpkin, spinach, blueberries, yams, or green beans to his food. Also omega-3 oil.
