hi and welcome

Yep sounds like your pup started out on to much insulin and that in itself can really put a damper on regulation because you have no idea on what dose to go down to and just throws the body out of whack

You could go back to a normal starting dose which would be 4 units and work your way back up .

Lantus doesnt have a great track record with dogs so you did not have such a good start with the professionals . I ran into the same thing and decided to go it alone with help from the forum
Jesse-26 lbs - 16.5 years old ,11 years diabetic, one meal a day homemade and a vitabone snack . 3 shots of Novolin( under the Relion name ) a day . Total insulin for a 24 hour period is 6.5 units of NPH insulin .
