Re: Using R along with NPH

I would use R only if my dog snuck some food/treat, and had a high sugar. If the curve is off because of too much or too little N, the dose of N needs to be adjusted.

Re: Sty or Stye on eye...

Sounds like you're doing all the right stuff. Warm compresses sounds soothing, and will promote healing.

Re: Ginny's Starz passed away last night

Starz was half ACD, half Aussie Shepard. She was a mother's day gift, that I did not want:) At the time, I had a very old dog and I didn't want her to have to deal with a puppy. They snarled at each...

Re: Is cold insulin painful

Starz knew when the insulin was cold and would give me a dirty look. I would roll the syringe between my fingers until the chill was gone. This did the trick, in a short amount of time.

Re: Diabetic dog in San Diego needs new home

I just sent a note and the photo of Lucy to the ACD rescue group in San Diego. The history of exposure to kids is a good thing for an ACD. They make great family dogs, as long as they have a job to...

Re: Diabetic dog in San Diego needs new home

I too was panicky about the cost of daibetes, when Starz was diagnosed. With guidance from this group, the cost of her care got to be managable. There is probably an ACD rescue group in CA that may...
