Default Re: Fogel

My dog, Maggie, through 9 years of diabetes, was a dog who was always on a tiny amount of insulin. We had a few times that we stopped it for a couple of days and she wouldn’t go up for 3 days. It was bizarre and every time I thought I had her figured out, she would fool me again.

I am not familiar with the Stewbie thing - It involves cooking so I couldn’t really do it and Maggie was so picky. If you can’t consistently feed the same meal with the same carb, fat and protein content every meal, a dog that is sensitive to insulin or food changes, may have problems. I would say just try to simplify and not change more than 1 thing at a time.
Maggie - 15 1/2 y/o JRT diagnosed 9/2007, Angel status on 6/20/16. Her mantra was never give up but her body couldn't keep up with her spirit. Someday, baby.......

We get three days of good levels 200 in the am, 120 ish around lunch and then bam day 3 mornings will be sky high.
Daisy does the same thing, almost like clockwork. Right now I've got her down to 4.5 units because all of a sudden each fasting level was creeping higher and higher and her levels were dropping too fast. In 3 months, she may need an increase or decrease.

Hang in there. You're not alone!!
Daisy 11 1/2 y/o 20lb Mini Schnauzer - 115g chicken breast, 45g chana dal, 55g green beans all chopped in a food processor, 20g Hills Perfect Weight, 1 tbs pumpkin, 5.5 units Novolin N q12h. Other meds-1/4t d-mannose twice daily, 1 Proviable DC daily, 1 multivitamin, 1/4t ground eggshells each meal, 1200mcg methyl B12 daily, 5mg zyrtec daily
