Default Re: Husky owner with diabetes questions

Hi Cal

I feed my Riliey twice a day followed by his insulin right after he eats. Works for us. The food and insulin work together supporting his immune system and regulating his diabetes.

So glad Sierra is doing better.

The 8 units is a low dose for a 70 pound dog to start.

I would stick with the same food as it is working with the insulin, you can changed foods later if you want.

Think you, ll see her getting more energy on 2 meals a day followed by injections, she wont feel sooo dull..

I, d ask your vet why such a low dose if insulin to start with?

Did you have a curve done on Sierra? Thats testing her blood glucose for 12 hours testing every 2 hours. This will help adjusting her insulin dose.
