The internal med doctor wanted to do a urinalysis today to rule out a UTI and they called tonight and said no infection but lots of glucose in urine no ketones though. They want me to do another curve this Saturday and then the internal medicine doctor will make a decision I guess whether or not we should switch his insulin.

I have noticed some sticky spots on my floor in various areas and he still licking his privates. I'm getting a little discouraged with all these doctors and we are pretty much the same place we were six weeks ago.
Can you post the results of the curve on 8 units of Vetsulin? Donít get discouraged. Even at 8 units, you are only 2 units above the normal starting dose for a dog of Yukonís weight. Glad you are seeing an Internal Med vet
