Re: Need help with Ben

My beautiful, kind, loyal Ben is gone. 😢

The vet said that it was time and family members said that I shouldn’t prolong his suffering.

Re: Need help with Ben

Dear all,

Thank you for your very good advice which I’ve been reading very carefully, especially about not rushing to change the type of insulin.

Re: Need help with Ben

To amydunn19: You really hit the nail on its head, as vet also suggested today that we will need to drop insulin dosage by 1/2 a unit, at least for the morning dose :D. We skipped the morning walk...

Re: Need help with Ben

One further general question please - as it is tick season, given that the dog is getting daily injections, do you still use chemical repellents or is there some other natural solution?

Re: Need help with Ben

Dear all,

I finally managed to get a curve with a loaned pet glucometre. Ben cooperated all the way through. I took blood from the base of the tail, and Ben hardly noticed.

Re: Need help with Ben

Yes, we were using u-100 syringe all along. This might explain why Caninsulin was not having any effect on Ben.

Re: Need help with Ben

No, we kept the same syringes. They have an orange cap. The needle is very fine. There is no indication on the packaging if they are 40 or 100. I will ask my pharmacist, as it will be good for me...

Re: Need help with Ben

Thank you for your well wishes.

Insulatard is insulin intended for human use, but as Caninsulin was not working we had to find something else. I think it is stronger than Caninsulin, and we...
