Default Re: Need help with Ben

Ben's conditions are way over my knowledge level, but 5 units of NPH isn't an overly high dosage for a 8kg / 18 pound dog. All dogs / situations are different, by my Annie is also about 18-19 pounds and is getting 8 to 8 1/4 units of NPH.

I understand you have a meter on order. Is it the AlphaTrak, or a human meter? You might think about getting a human meter from a local pharmacy if they are available and not too expensive. Staying in the 20s mmol/L (300s mg/dL) can't be good for him.

Annie was an 18 pound Lhasa Apso that crossed the rainbow bridge on 10-5-17. She was nearly 17 years old and diabetic for 9 years.
