I cut her nails again tonight as they were still long. One I cut too short and she started bleeding for a bit. Does that cause any problems with blood sugar?

Last night was a bit of a disaster. Cut her nails a bit as they seemed long and I figured it would help her roller skate syndrome when she was on hard floors. Accidentally cut one way too short and she wouldn't stop bleeding. I put pressure on it and still was just bleeding away. Called a friend and got baking soda and flour which I read online should stop it. It kept bleeding. I read you could stop it by super gluing the nail and I tried that. It stopped it a bit but it was still bleeding. I finally ran out to get a styptic pencil and of course when I got home it finally stopped bleeding.

She was 363 at 945PM last night and 372 at 6:20AM. I gave her 2.5U last night instead of 2U and the numbers are higher than I expected. Past two nights in the morning they were 304 and 322 respectively and that was doing 2U at night.

Big thing is she wanted to go the bathroom at 1AM and she was the most alive I've seen her in awhile. She was standing in her cage wagging her tail and trying to jump up on her hind legs.

Give the 2.5 units a few nights. The slightly higher morning numbers aren't rebound, probably just part of the adjustment process for her body.

Don't react and change dose again based on one day. Consistency and methodical is key.

We will keep here right now. Unless I step up during the day and keep the same at night like when I did 2U at night and 2.5U during the day. I'm really concerned about getting her numbers as a whole lower.

Currently I"m at a loss for what goes on each day. 1am she was acting like a puppy. 615am not as full of energy but walking around the best she could and even came to me when I called her from 5 feet away. Took her to the bathroom at 6:15am and she squatted and did her business. Ate her food etc. 7am take her out to the bathroom and she just falls down. Its bizarre and following approximately the same pattern. I don't know what to do to get my dog back 24 hours a day instead of an hour a day.

morning I"m driving at that time. 9am is about as close as I can get it. At night I could shoot more for 8pm. She has been on the same food for at least the past 6 years or more. Taste of the wild high prairie food. She gets a little chicken breast mixed in so she eats. I use very little, just enough that she smells it.

3\4 cup a day.

half of 3/4 is 3/8 of a cup.
