If this was my dogís readings, I would be happy because the numbers are all pretty good at most points in the day. I wouldnít care about the pattern being different. My dogís curve pattern has changed 3 times.

Iím more concerned about the inability to walk at certain times.

I think this might be it. I just watched a video of a cat that was similar. Problem with back legs and front legs folding up and b12 helped. So I just give like one capsule a day and they pee out what they don't use I read?

gnc methyl b12

It could only come from gnc. She takes two pills a day and she is doing so much better. We started her about a year ago on those.

We are going away last week of the month. Is it okay to premake shots for the week we are away?

The only problem that may occur is mixing the insulin in a syringe

Now people use insulin pens and they do suggest gently rolling the pen as with a vial of insulin that needs to be mixed so I dont see that as any difference from a syringe

So who ever is giving shots needs to properly mix the insulin as you would do with a vial

Do you not trust the person to take the correct dose from a vial ?

Yes i use some pretty strong readers to see the lines on the syringe .

The key is whatever works for snowball is all good

Not sure there's enough room in the syringe for the insulin to mix properly.

Maybe you could draw a line on the syringe for the person to see, or a piece of tape at the line, or black out everything under the line.

B12 seems to have done the trick. We were doing 1 pill a day and now half pill.

Is this a forever thing?

I am going to keep my Roxy on it forever. Now there is a time or two that she didnít get it and she was fine. Sometimes I would find it on the floor or GNC was out of it etc...
