Default Re: Glucose above 400 - Need advice

Right. Stay on the current dose for 5 to 7 days and then do a 12 hour curve. She’ll need that amount of time for her body to adjust. Some dogs can take even longer to adjust. You don’t want to go past her proper dose. This can cause rebound(big swings in blood glucose). Getting Elee close to being regulated is more of a marathon than a sprint. It takes a lot of patience

It’s ok to test a couple times a day, maybe at fasting, before her next curve.

Thanks jesse girl. You and I were both typing at the same time
