Default Re: Newly Diagnosed Pup- need advice!

hi and welcome

test at fasting then test again after eating. wait till his blood sugar is over 200 before injecting just a tip to be safe.

yes prednisone is related to diabetes. my dog had surgery in 2010 given this steroid then diagnosed 2012 diabetes.

did he have blood work done for an eye infection. if he does infections play havic on blood sugar. until its resolved his bg will run high.

my dog was 22 lbs got 5 1/2 units nph twice a day.

the other thing is he still might be producing his own insulin called Honeymooning. taking weekly curves will give you more info.
