My current "R" was opened 1 October. I'll probably replace at 6 months, with more than remaining.

Exclamation Re: Sissy's Mom

Thank you Craig & Jessegirl,
I guess mine is fine for awhile.

I think last night I must have had a fur shot with her N. She went down from the R, then went up like a rocket.Was 596 at 1 a.m. Gave same N this morning and she is down to normal. I usually feel her coat to make sure, I have never had a fur shot, but figure that must be what happened

Hi Jackie,

I was using r as well, and we were still on the same bottle. I still have it in the fridge.

We kept R around indefinitely. Because there is no mixing required, it tends to have a longer shelf life than N.

Jackie, you are doing pretty well if it's taken you this long to join the fur-shot club. Sorry it happened, but well, human error is always a factor in this process...

Question Re: Sissy's Mom

I have Sissy on 5 units N in the morning and 5 1/2 units at night. We are on day 7.
She is having these numbers
am 228
pm 223

am 560
pm 140

am 303
pm 148

am 294
pm 109

am 326
pm 75

My question is: what can I do so I can possibly raise the night dose to 6 units, and keep her from going so low at pm fasting???? or do I need to do something different????
