Yesterday night, our home vet stopped by and gave us our insulin (Caninsulin) for Felix. Initially I was hesitant as I was under the impression that a slower acting insulin was the right way to go for us newbies. The vet ( super nice) said he had better success with canninsulin and told us to try it out first and if it doesn’t work we can switch to something else, he also initially prescribed a dose of 1 unit but said if I was hesitant I can go 0.5 for a couple days then do the 1 unit with home monitoring. Long story short, I go to give his 0.5 dose this morning (5am) and the bugger tested 201 , I repeated it and it turned to 230. He also wasn’t eating very much maybe a quarter of his meal so in the end I opted not to give him a shot since neither my boyfriend or I will be home till 12 pm to check on him. Did I make the right choice ?Am I being too conservative? How can I get him to eat more before Insulin? And even 1.5-2 hrs after? I checked for ketones and it was negative ( thank god!). If I can get some suggestions before I do his PM shots that would be great! Also if someone can share some advice on how they schedule their Caninsulin shots and feeding that would be great!
