Customer Question

My Min Pin dog has been diagnosed as a diabetic with being treated under a VET for past 4 months. Each month curve panels indicate increase or decreasing his insulin. He is rapidly losing weight and my Vet just advises we need to keep weighing him weekly and monthly panel curves until we get the right amt of food to insulin. I feel like he is starving away and seeking advice on anything I can do.

How much does he weigh?
Did one of the curves reveal a low blood sugar that caused your vet to decrease his dose?
