Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!I think this is a great question, I would advise giving the 4 IU and not 5 tonight and contacting your veterinarian tomorrow and repeating the glucose +/- a fructosamine level which checks for the glucose stability in the bloodstream over a week versus the glucose which just checks the glucose level in the moment. In combination with the glucose it can help you definitively know that the dose increase is safe and best for your little one to move forwardBut for tonight I would give the 4 IU because you are simply going to worry all night about whether the dose is too high and we know that she can handle the 4 IU safelyI hope this makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both today
