I tested Prissy at 12:30 am. 287 (divided by .7) = 410

(This is with her eating 1/3 cup of food at 10:25 and 2 units of Vetsulin at 10:30 pm.)

I'm going to test her around 10 am, feed her & give her 3 or 4 units of Vetsulin depending on how much she eats. Does that sound ok?

Personally I would be very leery of point adding or subtracting with the numbers seen by any in-use meter.
That could present a danger, in my opinion as it is my experience that the points can vary depending upon the glucose range.
To use a set '.7 ' denominator could have you mis dosing/treating.

At 9 am she tested at 212 (divided by .7) = 302.85

9:15 - 9:30 - 1/3 cup chicken, rolled oats, pumpkin, parmesan cheese, milk

9:30 - 2.5 units Vetsulin

9:45 - 1/2 of a 3 inch Whimzee (potato starch dental chew)

I'm going to try her with Brown rice and chicken next meal to see if she will eat more.

11:30 - 155 - (divided by .7) = 221.42

1:15 - 1/4 small walnut

1:30 - 68 (divided by .7) = 97.14

I am going to test her in an hour since her bg is going lower, or should I do it sooner?

I appreciate your help, Craig. I am posting both readings so people can see what I am doing. I'm finally able to get blood from her ear and do the testing. I wasn't able to a year and a half ago.

With a low end 68 I would be giving mine a snack to bring the sugar level up and with retesting in about 30 minutes to make sure it is trending up.

Will do. Thank you! What kind of snack do you think would be good?
