Default Re: Levi - new thread

With a big dog like Levi, you should be able to get a good sample from the inside of his upper lip. There is a lot of blood available there and it will not hurt him at all.

As jesse girl says, insulin increases should only be done after analyzing the results of a 12 hour curve and they should be based on the lowest number in the curve. This prevents you from going past the proper dose, which can cause Somogyi Rebound and the resulting big swings in BG.
