i think jesses numbers are a bit more stable in the summer with her drinking more water after her rabbit runs but i do believe these things can have an affect

i guess if the numbers change back in the summer you may have your answer

jesse is more comfortable in the cooler months with the coat she wears 24 hours a day

what ever the reason its always nice to see a better trend

We find Eddie needs a bit less insulin in the warmer months - not sure if it is temperature related or just because we tend to be outside with him a lot more in the summer so he gets more exercise. It doesn't exactly make his numbers more stable though - just a bit different.

We recently went through a cold snap here and I had to up Snicker's insulin. She's just recently been diagnosed so who knows the real reason for the change but she spends over an hour a day when its zero degrees out, I can't help but think it affects her.

I did read an article that claimed that more dogs are diagnosed with diabetes in the winter months and for the state of Wisconsin January is the peak month for newly diagnosed dogs.

March 10th 2016 will be one year that Rusty was diagnosed with diabetes and he really is doing well...never thought we would get to this point when first diagnosed.
I am always looking at everyone's post and have learned so much from all of you.
Thank you so much for being here.
I have a wonderful vet and with her support and the support of all of you this journey has become less stressful for Rusty and me.
Rusty will be going for a complete physical on March 15th.
