The most difficult time in regulation is the beginning and starting insulin therapy especially for a dog with other medical challenges as you have seen with your dog lily mike . Jesse had multiple complications and her history of epilepsy which made jesse quite challenging but not impossible

I might even project a complete curve be done before insulin therapy begins . The reason is the staring dose and what to begin with . If numbers are lower maybe 300s or lower across the board you may want to start with a lower starting dose . Jesse was one of those dogs that needed a dose lower than the normal stating dose which was an obstacle to her regulation .

They even include algorithms (flow charts) for getting dogs regulated...

Good points jesse girl.

Lilyís undiagnosed hypothyroidism really threw a monkey wrench into her regulation. We lost several months and she almost lost her life because of it.
