MY diabetic dog blood sugar is 422 she was seen yesterday

Customer Question

MY diabetic dog blood sugar is 422 she was seen yesterday and was in ketosis She got SQ fluids and 1 unit regular. We were monitoring her sugar today and the lowest was 197. She is hardly eating, The vet also reduced her NPH to 3 units twice a day from 5 units twice a day. I just gave her a third 3 unit dose of Nph. Will she need something else or do I need to find a vet tonight Terri

I am so sorry to hear about Fifi. I just came online and saw your question and I am sorry you did not get help from an expert before now.

How is she this morning? Did you take her to a vet last night?
