What was Sissy's reading? Did you discover the low reading while doing a curve, or a single spot test? If you were doing a curve, can you post the earlier readings?

Different dogs use their insulin differently. Some dogs (Annie) "use up" their insulin within about 12 hours. Other dogs seem to get more than 12 hours from an injection.
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.
