The dog feeder doesn't "calculate" the food, I do. If her nadir is dropping to 70 3 hours after eating on 3 units and I'm at work, I'm going to drop her insulin to 2.5 and somehow give her something to eat.

Somebody on here a few years back used an automatic feeder for a targeted snack and it worked really well. I was always very lucky to have Maggie with me at work every day.

just wondering how ur Daisy girls doing

thinking adding water dilutes the strength of the stewby causing the insulin to raise her blood sugar

did u get her weight. a weight loss would warrant a decrease!

its been 5 days on 2.5 units. how's her fasting numbers an 1 1\2 hours after feeding and insulin dear☺

there's other medical issues that cause a reduction in insulin. if this is the reason. feeding 4 times a day is good but she needs a blood work done. but not to worry
