Default Re: Not sure what to do.....

i too changed insulins from caninsulin here in canada to novolin nph. the vet fired me. i started taking control of Riles diabetes. i was up to 6 1/2 units. everybody said up the insulin. i changed his food 1/2 tin twice a day started him on 5 1/2 nph then stayed there.
i.m concerned with Henry.s weight loss .not weighing him and not dropping his insulin dose. going up to 30 units is insane.
i.d weigh him. buy the nph inject starting dose wait 7 days do a curve.
peeps here use Apoquel for skin allergies it works. rashes.
why is he losing weight?
the feed chart says 2 cups twice a day
