    Hi everyone, finally completed my first BG today, now need some advice on what’s next. Based on what I’ve read on here, and the readings from my cat, I should increase his insulin dose. Since he’s so high, does it make sense to increase by 1 unit? So injecting 2.5units twice a day?

    I also need to work on his feeding, but I’ll tackle that separately. Today I fed him every 2 hours, as I was doing the curve testing.

    Yes, I would increase by 1 unit (to 2 1/2 units) but only if you are around to test. Usually one increase 1/4 unit at low doses like you are at now.
