Default Re: Hershey

I totally agree with jesse girlís analysis.

In addition, I can see why your vet wants to drop her insulin to 15 units. The vet was correct in starting Hershey on 17 units because thatís the standard conservative starting dose for an 86 lb dog. (86 x .20) = 17.2. Because her BG has gone up with every methodical increase in insulin, It just may be that Hershey requires less than the normal starting dose. As they say, every dog reacts differently to injected insulin.
