Default Re: Snickers' story

i might not have given a full dose of insulin without a full meal and a possible upset belly so i would watch blood sugar today and formulate a plane for the second meal if you are still having a problem

my thought with any upset stomach and no desire to eat i would stay away from force feeding and maybe fast a dog for at least one meal

you usually can give a quarter of the normal dose without any food . testing blood sugar is preferred with this method and if blood sugar is at a lower level at fasting it maybe prudent to skip a dose . the more food consumed the more insulin you maybe able to give

hope snickers feel better
