Hi Cal

Just wanted to add to my previous post regarding the low dose of insulin.

A 70 pound dog starting dose in lbs would be at most 17 units.

Do you have a recent curve from the vet that you could post?

Maybe ask your vet why 8 iu. A curve will show how much insulin he needs

How is he feeling?
