    Hello everyone! I am so grateful this message board exists!
    My Alabaster was diagnosed last week with Diabetes. His sugar was in the 900's and since starting his insulin it has stayed between 390-370, and has not dipped below that. My husband is a diabetic so we have the strips and glucometer and have been testing every other day. Our grade follow up appointment is in three weeks. We're very tempted to giving him 2 units twice a day to get him down, but the Vet said to leave it like it is until the appointment. This is making me very nervous. Thoughts on this? We have also cut out all dry food. Thank you all.

    Welcome. Come over to the Health Forum and give us a bit of history. What kind of insulin, dosage, etc. Great that you cut out the dry food.

    Welcome Janel and Alabaster!
    Definitely don't want to give more insulin to get numbers down, it's not a medicine like Ibuprofen. We'll discuss more when you post on Main Health :)
