It does sound drastic. We've ended up with just as much Novolin as Vetsulin. I felt they started Vinny too low as well, and we weren't half. I wouldn't give them all 5, maybe start at 4?
Mel: My monster is Vinny! He's a black lab, diagnosed with diabetes June 21, 2013. His birthdate was celebrated the last weekend of May. He left this world on July 27, 2018, he was 12 years old.
