Default Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

yes thats correct to do a curve right away
drinking alot of water and frequent peeing still after 2 weeks is not good.
3 units doesnt seem to be enough and a low dosage to start on.

.25 times the dogs weight to start insulin so for 32 lbs x .25 equals 5.5 units.

do the curve then adjust the insulin only according to the lowest number.

you need a good quality dog food low fat
remove the sausage and dog chew treats add in frozen chopped green beans.

choose one food the dry or the wet turkey then give the recommended amount according to the feed guide.

test after feeding only inject when hes over 200.
