Re: Spirit-Newfoundland

I hope Spirit is feeling better soon. It's so hard when they're not feeling well and we don't know what to do. {{{{{{{{{{Hugs }}}}}}}}}}

Re: Annie - Getting too smart!

Aw, the things we do for our babies!

Re: My Pretty Prissy Girl

Thanks, Amy!

Prissy is doing well today. I am keeping her at 2.5 units of Vetsulin twice a day for now and will do another blood curve in a week. Any thoughts?

Thank you to all for the help...

Re: My Pretty Prissy Girl

Yes, I am feeding her a consistent well balanced diet. This is the first time we have had trouble in almost two years. Why do you ask?

Re: My Pretty Prissy Girl

I appreciate your help, Craig. I am posting both readings so people can see what I am doing. I'm finally able to get blood from her ear and do the testing. I wasn't able to a year and a half ago.

1:15 - 1/4 small walnut

1:30 - 68 (divided by .7) = 97.14

I am going to test her in an hour since her bg is going lower, or should I do it sooner?
