Hi All, I am new here and need some help, I think. Feeling a bit lost and overwhelmed. My buddy Rod Stewart is 11 y/o and was diagnosed with diabetes a month and a half ago after I noticed he dropped quite a bit of weight, his coat became dull, and seemed to have less energy. Despite a huge appetite. At that time I was feeding him a mix of fancy feast pate and a grain free dry food. My vet prescribed Novolin N at 3 units 2x per day. We did this for a month, and I did notice his energy levels improve. i.5 weeks ago, I took Rod in and they did a fructosamine curve. The vet said his blood sugar was still running high and increased him to 5 units 2x/day. The vet scheduled Rod for a follow up visit in three months. :/ The vet didn't give me any numbers for Rod's test results, and I just trusted the vet and did not think to ask. However, Since then I have actually noticed that Rod has quite a bit more energy, he's grooming himself better, and his coat is improving. Still, I think he needs to be monitored more closely. I'm also thinking his dose seems kind of high compared to what I am reading here but...I have not been home testing until last night when I started reading a lot of info here. My vet had told me it wasn't necessary Last night Rod's PMPS was 580! I gave him the 5 units and at +2 he was at 280. +3 he stayed at 280. This morning, AMPS was 480. +1 was 421. +2 was 321. I have to go to work now but hope to come back home really quick and test again in about two hours. I haven't been able to get a urine test for ketones but his breath smells normal and he seems to be in good spirits. He actually just jumped on the kitchen counter (the jerk), something he hadn't done in a while. I guess I am just looking for help/advice. I know I don't have a lot of data yet.
