Unhappy Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

i remebered theres a 6 hour difference from canada to the uk when i watched the wimbelton tennis

great you two got the curve done

looks like Pugleys should feel better soon.

upping insulin by .5 will or shouldl ower the bg by 50 points which isnt enough.

raising by 1 unit is 100 less which might be enough to make hm feel better.

my dog was 21 lbs and on 5 1/2 units of the more concentrated nph insulin.
caninsulin i used also and Riles needed 1 unit more.

your vet will.probably raise it by 1 to 4 units.

i would wait 3 to 5 days take more readings and adjust again to the lowest number.

post what the vet says okay
