Default Re: Winston - Odd numbers; need advice

Does anyone think a UTI is a possibility here?

2 hours after eating many dogs can be higher because the food is raising blood sugar before the insulin starts to pick up steam. That's typical of a bowl curve, and maybe your dog is going back to a bowl curve. If he had it before, it's possible.
And remember his body needs to adjust to a new dose, don't expect a correction right away.
I look back at my numbers and see identical morning fastings on some different days, same dose each day, but different nadirs. Some nadirs lower than fasting, some higher. Go figure.

I sure hope you can get Winston regulated soon. He is adorable. What food is he on?

Per meal, he gets 50 grams Wellness Core reduced fat kibble, 22 grams boiled chicken, and 3/4 a tub of Natural Balance Duck and Chicken.

He also gets chicken jerky for a reward for his shots.

I am wondering if your dog food company could have changed heir formula. I know this happens. I have a pet supply store and companies do their new launches of food in usually March and July to coincide with two very large trade shows. That is usually when they make changes. I donít know but it might be worth looking into.

A UTI is always a possibility or perhaps a dental infection. If you can get his teeth cleaned, it might be a great idea.

If all things check out, you might want to roll with the increase and see if it helps.
