Hi. My 10 year old dsh rescue Lucky was diagnosed in late June 2017 with fd. He had lost 7 pounds since March 2017, increased thirst, hunger, urination. I knew that it was diabetes because my husband of 28 years is a juniville diabetic. Diagnoised at 16. Anyhow, I get him into the vet and his initial bs was 598 by glucometer. Through his blood work though it was 732. So started insulin. The vet put him on vetsulin. It took two weeks for the insulin to get here. Ridiculous. She started him on 2 units however we were given the wrong syringes at the vets. They should have given us u 40's and they gave us u 100's. We including the vet didn't know this had happened until he went into the vets for a bs curve. His bs were 428-618. So. We had to order the correct syringes. Another week later and we have the correct syringes. Still have high bs readings on him. Lowest has been 254. Now he has trouble walking properly. He wobbles and falls a lot and goes only a few steps and falls. So that is where we are today. 8-19-2017. I'm really struggling with this. Looks like I have a lot to learn and do to help him live his best life.
