Default Re: trouble regulating my SIssy

Insulin can last more than 12 hours, especially if you've had a low. But it also depends on how much the food you gave raised her blood sugar. I would usually reduce insulin if you've had a low episode.

If she's really low, you would need to give some honey, karo syrup or regular pancake syrup to get into her system immediately then follow up with food which has a longer lasting affect.
