Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? How long has your dog has been on insulin for? Which insulin is Sampson on?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
45 days Humulin
Expert:  Dr. Alleyne replied 1 year ago.
Okay thanks for the additional information. Usually with insulin as long as Sampson is doing well with his Insulin you probably have an hour flexibility on when you can give the insulin. This means you can probably be okay giving the Insulin 11 hours apart. So the best way to get back on a 8-8 schedule is to give the dose of insulin at 11 pm tonight then 11 hours later and so on until you get back to the 8 o'clock hour. Then you can continue to give it 12 hours a part as before.
