Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How much insulin does he tend to get regularly?

How many hours has it been since his last dose before you gave this extra 3units?

Does his breath have a sweet or nail polish like odor?

Any access to toxins?

Does he seem sore in his belly if press there? Sore anywhere else?

Your response was too late. We took him to ER last night due to the care he needed. The Vet asked us to leave him at the clinic to get the help he needed to stabilize his glucose of 600 mg.
