Default Re: Dog diagnosed with diabetes 4/28/20

My jesse early in her diagnosis would be lethargic after when insulin started kicking in at about 1.5 hours and still does on occasion but its hard to tell if the insulin is causing it as dogs nap but what i have noticed if its a hard nap and it just looks like its knocking them out then I believe it could be the action of the injected insulin . When your testing blood sugar at home you maybe able to correlate that.
Jesse-26 lbs - 15.5 years old - 10 years diabetic - one meal a day homemade and a vitabone snack - 3 shots of Novolin a day sometimes Novolog or r as a correction to higher sugar but that is rare. total insulin for a 24 hour period is between 8 and 10 units of NPH insulin depending on her fasting number
