Default Re: Levemir?

dog is 72 pounds and yes I think this vet is out to lunch

we are new to all this, having it dropped in our laps knowing nothing about treating diabetes. There's a big hole in our wallet though from that emerg vet stay!!!!!!

emergency internet searches about Levemir indicated a starting dose would be 0.1 units/kg twice a day, so that would only be 3.2 units each shot!

compounding our confusion was the meter was set at code 36 as obtained and used for our first couple of tests before I read the literature and found that the vial of test strips said code 6 for dogs. Changing the code and retesting showed a result about half the original value. I'll have to check with my daughter when she gets back as to why it was set at code 36
