Default Re: Giving insulin and the time change

This morning I gave him his shot at 6:15, tomorrow 6:30, Tuesday 6:45, and Wednesday back at 7:00 a.m. Shots are 12 hours apart so I do the same in the evening. Seems logical to me but as I said, I am a newbie.

I think this is a very good method, if your dog is NOT regulated, but if they are, I think you have a little more time to adjust. One vet told me that you can have about 1 hr of flexibility, but I think only in a regulated pet.
