Default Switching to NPH - question on process

We are going in the middle of this week to switch Mary, 12 years old from Caninsulin to NPH. She was diagnosed with diabetis in July 2009. Right now we are giving her 8 units of Caninsulin. Vet told don't give Mary Caninsulin for 2 days (to shake off Caninsulin) and then start with 9 units of NPH. I'm afraid do not give her insulin for 2 days and another concern is about 9 units. I read that dose of NPH should be lower then Caninsulin dose. Would somebody give me other opinions or share own experience. Thank you.
