HI , My Mr George was diagnosed June 13. HE Was put on Vestal in 2 units every 12 hours. I'VE BEEN TESTING HIM before each dose. VTHE first vet refused to put him on a sliding scale ( I asked because I'm a retired Rn). Needless to say that after I got yelled at by one of her colleagues for requesting syringes that measure 1/2 units, I found another vet. I'm still not happy with this one because I think we are under treating him, but at least this vet listens to me. George is currently eating every 8 hours with a total of 3 grams carbs a day and a max calorie count of 250. He is a big boy weight down to 18.8lbs from a high of 19.2 lbs. I have been getting his glucose before each meal. Sometimes I can go for up to 5 days without giving insulin and other times I can't get his glucose below 180. Thanks in advance for any ideas . He is also getting cost quin twice a day along with tumeric and fish oil for his arthritis.
