Default Re: Who took their dog to a specialist? Advice?

cushing meds could have caused the instability .

people do curves every one to two weeks until the dog is regulated and that can mean different types of regulation . i am happy for jesse to be from 100 to 250 . she has had very good sugar and at times not so much in her almost 10 year career in diabetes

usually a starting dose is multiplying weight by .2 now my jesse need less than a starting dose so nothing is perfect . all dogs have a unique way of processing injected insulin . my jesse is on nph from walmart
Jesse-26 lbs - 15.5 years old - 10 years diabetic - one meal a day homemade and a vitabone snack - 3 shots of Novolin a day sometimes Novolog or r as a correction to higher sugar but that is rare. total insulin for a 24 hour period is between 8 and 10 units of NPH insulin depending on her fasting number
