Question Fitting a Freestyle Libre monitor ?

Hi. Our vet tried putting a Freestyle Libre on our pug but it didn't work. The little needle got bent when they were trying to attach the device to the dog.

I have another one now and I need to...

Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

His endless barking for more food is also driving us crazy. We've just today tried moving to a three meal per day regime with his previous 2 X 8 unit injections given as 3 X 5.5 unit injections.

Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

Just an update.... after talking to one of his previous vets, who advised increasing his insulin to 8 units twice daily, his blood sugars have finally come down to normal levels. Unfortunately, he...

Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

He was 558 yesterday and is 378 today. This is like six weeks or more now of high glucose levels. I'm getting really scared that he might go into ketoacidosis.

How long can a dog stay with these...

Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

Could you give me quantities for that recipe please ? That sounds very nutritious and if it worked for Jesse, it should also work for Pugsley. Thanks !

Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

Thanks so much to everyone replying. It helps to know I'm not alone. Pugsley's blood glucose has not shifted much at all from the 500's. Although a test today put him at 15.8 (sorry can't convert...

Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

We are finding this impossibly stressful. It wouldn't be too bad if he was the kind of old dog that slept all the time but he's fairly active and it's hell trying to follow him everywhere as his...

Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

He's been drinking a lot lately again and my wife has just done a blood test - 30.8 (560mg/dl) - and that is 4h30 after eating and 5 units of insulin. She's phoning the vets now. We messed up last...

Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

We're taking him back to the eye hospital tomorrow for an assessment. If his eye hasn't progressed as they hope they will have to remove it under general anaesthetic. They've already warned me that...

Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

You think that having him in a sling will make it easier to get eye drops in? He will still be free to move his head away from the dropper - he fights like a cat at the moment - you really think a...

Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

All hell broke loose yesterday. I took him to the vet who said his ulcer was really bad and the eye was in danger of popping. She discussed euthanasia but I'm not giving up on him that easily. She...

Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

Hi. Sorry I've been offline for a few days. I've been struggling with various things. The vet increased his insulin to 5 units twice a day and although I haven't checked his bloods, he seems a lot...

Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

Hi. Almost there! We have managed to get 6 readings from him at 2h intervals - 7am, 9am, 11a, 1pm, 3pm & 5pm. My wife wasn't able to get a 7pm blood sample as he was so fed up of having his ears...

Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

I just spoke to the surgery and the receptionist asked the vets about the reading and they weren't worried - they said it was because he hadn't eaten and hadn't had his insulin. They advised me to...

Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

I just took the first reading of his curve - BEFORE he had any breakfast (ie he'd just woken up). It's insane - 31.9 (571) ! I'm trying to get through to the vet now

The Alphatrak 2 meter arrived this morning and I've just taken his first reading, exactly 12h after his breakfast. It's high.... 26.1 mmol = 469.8 mg/dL

I rang the emergency vet (Sunday) who said...

Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

The vet told me that we have to wait until Wednesday to do the curve as it takes the body two weeks to settle after a dose change (in this case from zero to three units). Iím really not looking...

Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

Hi Both. Thanks for your kind words and advice. He's 10Kg / 22lbs. I don't know the weight of the food we give him yet, but his morning and evening meals are quite substantial. He's on 3 units of...

Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

Hi.

My 12 year old baby boy has just been diagnosed as diabetic. It's not under control yet as despite 2 X 3ml injections of insulin daily, he's still drinking to excess and is peeing gallons. ...
