My mini Dachshund Cornelius was diagnosed April 2nd. He had a 4 night stay in the hospital with Ketoacidosis.

Weight: 17.8lb Miniature Dachshund.
Diet: Main diet is Taste of the Wild (Bison and Venison dry). He's currently on Hills Prescription Digestive Care Wet because of a stomach problem.
Insulin: Novolin N 7 units twice per day
Tester: CVS advance

He's not been regulated yet. His blood still tests from 300 to over 600. Though it has slowly been going down week over week.

It is discouraging that we've had to raise his insulin dose so high and still see minimal results.

Hi,

I'm new to the world of canine diabetes as Ozzy was just diagnosed this week.

Ozzy, Miniature Pinscher
10lbs
Chicken, Brown rice, green beans, cottage cheese, and supplemented with dry kibbles with Turkey and Brown rice as main ingredients.
Vetsulin, 2 units every 12 hours
Waiting for delivery of One Touch Ultra2, after reading this site's product suggestions.

Hoping Ozzy and I can successfully control his diabetes with minimal vet interaction, but we shall wait and see.

Best to all.

Dog's name, breed: Affric (Finfair Loch Affric), gordon setter, 6 y. male
Dog's weight: norm 32 kg (70 lb); lost 6 kg when first diagnosed with diabetes 3 months ago, but now he is in his normal weight again.
Diet: Specific CRD 2x 1 cup and Specific CRW canned food 2x ½
Insulin: caninsulin
Number of units per injection and injections per day: 12 units twice a day
Brand of BG meter if home testing: Accu Chek Performa

We live in Estonia. My dog Affric was diagnosed with diabetes three months ago, when I took him to our vet because he was drinking too much. A few days later Affric was diagnosed with ketoacidosis as well and spent 10 days in very severe condition under IV drip. We didn't have much hope, but he has recovered by now and at home. His blood sugar varies from time to time and we are trying to find the best solution. We are still learning to live with diabetes, and I have found lots of useful instructions in this forum.

Midnight
19 pound rat terrier
age: 9 1/2
Diagnosed with diabetes 5/2/14

Give her 4 1/2 units twice daily of Vetsulin
Food: Hills W/D Divide the can into quarters...does best on 3 Q each meal with about 1/4 cup of brown rice and a 1/4 cup some meat...steak, chicken, pork tenderloin,even fish. Sometimes add green beans but this looks like makes her want to eat grass the next day.

One vet said I can give her a mid meal and a late meal without the insulin as the insulin is still working. Can't decide if that mid meal without more insulin is a good idea or not as it does cause her blood glucose to rise but at least she is not getting glucose rebound.

Now partially blind with cataracts. Am trying to decide if I should put her thru the gruel of a cataract surgery as she is an intense little dog that hates the vet....
