I don't think you hit an artery because blood would spurt out. But you might have hit a little vessel. But you probably will have to keep a closer eye than usual on her tonight.

I'm sure it's scary. But it should be fine. Just keep testing :-)

heads up on rubbing the injection area after injection. just makes the insulin absorb faster. she should be fine but heads up again if theres any infection.
theres no leeway with her low blood sugar to absorb an antibiotic safely.

"Rub" was too harsh a word, more like wipe. This passed on to me by our VET to test for a "miss".

Sadie got thru the night just fine, got me up at Three so I could go outside and see what a nice cold night it was .

This mornings overnight fasting number was 148.

An easy way to see if you've missed at all on a shot is to smell for any insulin. It has a strong scent from even a drop, so once you know the smell, you'll be able to tell if any didn't make it into her. I give Grayson a kiss after his shot so there is no wondering...if it's there, I can smell it easily.

I use the kiss test also , some one explained it as a wet band aid smell. And it does indeed smell like a wet band aid to me, lol.
After you give the injection, pull the plunger out and smell the rubber tip, then you'll know exactly what it smells like.
Ugh, I hate those middle of the night pottie breaks, especially when it's cold! Glad Sadie is doing better.

Well we had a great day yesterday and a good visit with the Vet. He has 5 other dogs with Diabetes and I'm the only owner that does their own curves! He is a believer in what I am doing so he is great to work with.

We did put Sadie back on the Rimadyl for her joint pain and what a difference! This morning she was really having no problem walking around the house and showing no sign of pain.

And now the other shoe drops

Her numbers for yesterday were right on her averages, She did have a big day hair cut, bath, vet visit so I was ready to do a full curve today and its another roller coaster day...
These readings were taken with Alphatrak2
6AM 337
8AM 447
10AM 280
12N 218
2PM 265
4PM 308
6PM 563 The highest recorded BG she has ever had!
Extra unit tonight and now on the wait for the 8PM reading.

At the same time I took the above readings I used a Relion prime to take these readings:
6AM 187
8AM 353
10AM 208
12N 139
2PM 194
4PM 292
6PM 442

Really no way to compare or adjust the readings between the two meters.

How long has she been on the rimadyl? It may have caused her blood sugar to go up. Maggie could never take it because it made her sick so maybe somebody else can relay their experiences with the effect on blood sugar.
