Default Re: Setback after dog had an UTI

Now If you know for sure the UTI is gone ( symptoms can mimic diabetic symptoms ) and you are showing diabetic symptoms then your dog is probably not getting enough insulin . Now was the dramatic reduction in the dose based off the 52 without any collaborating numbers with a complete curve ? If so then that larger reduction may have been premature . If your not testing at home I would recommend to do it and you could avoid things like this in the future knowing exactly what is going on with blood sugar and not move to a panic response and could be more methodical on how to adjust the dose based on a complete curve . From what i have seen with my jesse for her diabetic life once regulated her dose has not changed much
Jesse-26 lbs - 16.5 years old ,11 years diabetic, one meal a day homemade and a vitabone snack . 3 shots of Novolin( under the Relion name ) a day . Total insulin for a 24 hour period is 6.5 units of NPH insulin .
