This curve is pretty consistent from am to pm which is good because its nice to be predictable

As the others have said food can play a big part to stability . You are seeing a big drop early which maybe cause the big rise when it bottoms out . So that big drop has to be slowed down and flatten the curve

Its possible raising the dose in this situation may have made the body out of whack combating to much insulin and may take time to settle

Also the hunger and struggling to gain weight maybe another medical condition outside of diabetes like thyroid problem and something worth looking into

The other possibility is even 1.5 units maybe to much . My jesse ended up on less than a normal starting dose for her

You have to look at whats problematic within a curve ( hopefully consistent ) and figure on how to solve that which for your dog is that big drop in the first few hours after insulin

The other good thing insulin is working maybe to good early and would like to see that drop slowed down and flatten
