Hi everyone, I just started home testing Nugget's BG yesterday. I attempted to get a couple of readings, but the veins in her ear are quite difficult to see/lance. She does not love this task as her ears are sensitive. I got a few readings, which can be seen in her SS. She is slightly above the normal range, from 214-226. The only "normal" reading I got was 12 hours after her first Lantus shot of the day (so I guess you would call that the PMPS), and that was 188. I am unsure of whether or not I need to adjust her dosage based on those numbers, or if I should stick with this dose (2 units/2x day) until I get more readings to see the trends. I also realized that I was not administering the insulin properly. The vet showed me how to do it, but I am almost positive that the syringe was not fully under her skin. So all this week it is possible that she did not receive the full dose. I figured out a better way to part her hair to see her skin, so it should be better from now on. Any suggestions to make the BG test easier? I tried a warm washcloth (she hated that), I tried the warm rice in a sock (she bugged out hearing the rice move)... I don't want to keep sticking her poor little ears I would rather find the technique that works and stick once real quick! I stuck her a lot yesterday, and her ears are VERY red. I don't want to cause her anymore pain. I was going to put some neosporin on her ears but she will lick and clean and I don't think its a good idea for her to ingest that stuff!
