Default Re: New and pretty overwhelmed

MomofGus, I will ask about the Novolin. The needles we use now are 29 gauge.

I'm curious as to how you can pull up enough skin from the hip area? (maybe with the shorter needle this isn't an issue?) Winston has a lot of extra skin around his scruff area, not so much anywhere else. I want to make sure I don't get his muscle or stab myself.

I have a glucose meter because I am pre diabetic, myself, and I test myself with it. However, on Winston my meter read 352 when the lab read 480. So that is very inaccurate. Is that typical, that human meters are not accurate for dogs? Or is my meter just not working?
