Re: Pray for mochi..

They can have between one quarter and one half of their normal insulin dose with no food.

Re: Not sure what to do.....

That's great news! I love NPH - so affordable and works very well for so many dogs. In a way, it was good that Vetsulin was pulled from the market for a while - it introduced a lot of veterinarians...

That sounds like a lot of insulin for a blue heeler. Please tell us how much she weighs and what measures of her blood sugar have shown.

Re: Joy the Mini-Schnauzer
