Yoyo (chi mix)
22 pounds before diagnosis, lost to 12.6
One touch ultra translated by vet
Once she got sick she would not eat dog food
Fed chicken, fish, beef, pork, she would eat some wild rice and a few vegetables.
Her lowest reading on her curve was a little over 400.
Vetsulin started at 2 units twice a day gradually up to 8 units twice a day.
9am and 9pm.

Tink - Border Collie - 28kg - Age 12 yrs - diagnosed September currently 2 x 12 units each day of Caninsulin 12 hrs apart.
Struggling to lower count. It rises by lunch time as high as 24. A worry - but we will continue as long as we are able to maintain her lifestyle and as long as her quality of life is good. She lost a lot of weight to begin with vet happy with increase. She is a large collie, not of a dainty build. She also has Metacam daily.

Hi All,
We are brand new to this site.
Our 11 year old male pug Brady was diagnosed just before Christmas 2015.

He is a big boned, tall pug who currently weigh 32 lbs (was 37 lbs at his highest................ too much we knew)
Currently he is eating Hill's Science WD dry food (glucose management) with a little boiled chicken breast added. (we are struggling with the food issue, because he is used to eating frequently throughout the day)

He is taking Vetsulin .6 two times per day.

We don't have a meter yet.

2/18/16 update
Beebee was just diagnosed with Diabetes too!
she receives 2 units of vetsulin 2x day.
Food is: enzymediane 1/16 t. incubated in food for 30-60 mins.
Food RC id canned, Natural Balance ltd Sweet Potato /Chicken dry and HM Chicken Breast sprinkle on top. approx., 3/4 to 1 cup.


I am realizing just how ignorant I am about how to treat this condition.

Our female pug Beebee was just diagnosed with EPI - Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency and I am a wreck trying to meet her needs as well as Brady's. She has to eat 4 meals a day with enzymes to regain her weight.

I know I will learn a lot of very vital information on this site.
Thanks!
Laurel

Kirby is a Schnoodle and is 8 1/2 years old. He was diagnosed in Dec of 2015.

He currently weighs 21 pounds. His lowest weight was 17 pounds and highest was 31 pounds.

He eats Blue Buffalo Healthy Weight 2/3 cup twice a day. He gets boiled chicken, frozen green beans and pieces of a rice cake as treats. The vet recommended the rice cakes as he acts like he is starving most of the time. They have one ingredient - whole grain brown rice and are salt free.

He has been getting 5 units of Novolin N twice a day but we're increasing to 6 units twice a day tomorrow (Please wish us luck.)

I use the Alpha Trak 2 glucose meter. I started with the ReliOn meter but I was having a very hard time. The Apha Trak gives me more time and you can insert the strip more than once. There are also two spots to try and get blood on each strip. Even though the ReliOn strips are much cheaper I was throwing many of them away because of failed attempts.
