Default Re: Elderly long-term diabetic having weird episodes

hi

16 kg is 35lbs
for a 35lb dog 20 units seems alot
starting dose would be 8 units x 2
without eating properly and the high insulin
and along with other meds not eating well can bring on other problems like dopy and not wanting to eat
my dog was 20lbs and on 5 1/2 units at 17
his dose didnt change over the years

was her insulin dropped when she lost weight? 20 units would be good for a 27kg dog.

might just be reducing insulin for a quick fix this means testing frequently

can u post a recent curve?

are you testing at home?
