Hello All! My name is Molly and my 10-year-old short hair Douglas (Dougie) was diagnosed with diabetes on 12/28/2019. I have started to administer insulin morning and night (ProZinc U-40) 7am & 7pm. I have also been trying to read up on everything I can, and I am so overwhelmed. Injections are really hit or miss. All the example injection videos I see make it look easy, and sometimes it is, but some days he whips his head and body around making it near impossible to give the shot without potentially hurting him (he did this once with the needle in and I'm afraid it might have hurt him and turned him off to the process). He also does not have a lot of extra skin on the scruff so I have been experimenting with the front "armpit area" on either side, as there is a lot of extra skin there, but he seems more sensitive in that area. If I can grab the scruff the right way it always goes in easily. I also have just received the AlphaTrak2 BG test monitor kit and am now even more overwhelmed. He gets so ancy before feeding times I have no idea how to get him still long enough to poke him. I attempted to test for the first time last night in the ear and paw and it did not go well. Blood Testing is where I seem to have the most need for information as I have yet to successfully test, and from what I've read it is very important to home test. As well as information on blood glucose testing, any tips, tricks, treats, or just general advice on how to ease into this process for an overwhelmed newbie and nervous/ confused critter would be sooo appreciated, because right now I feel like I am bombing. (Please explain like I am 5) Thank you so much in advance!!!
