Default Re: Levemir?

levemir is 4 times more potent than NPH and vetsulin as far as dosing so that would compare to 80 units of insulin for a 72 pound dog that is an extreme amount as compared to those other insulin's

how long has the dog been on 20 units ? i tend to agree with your decision to drop down to 10 units at a maximum especially since you have already have seen a hypo event
