Default Re: Champ - just diagnosed and so worried!

Just a reminder that many think a starting insulin dosage is 0.2 units per pound. So, a 80 pound pup might be started at around 16 units. A few have required less, but I think most end up with a higher dosage.

Edit: looks like Raysaint and I had the same thought about starting dosage at the same time.
Annie was an 18 pound Lhasa Apso that crossed the rainbow bridge on 10-5-17. She was nearly 17 years old and diabetic for 9 years.
