I'm not SURE at this point...She is getting a dental next week, and my vet dropped her to 2 units (from 4.5)..Was thinking on trying BCP PZI...But would like to get her dental done first, she has 2 bad teeth..sad smiley

Note: A month later, Maisy finally had her dental extraction done, and her blood glucose numbers lowered dramatically! --Steve E.g.:

As some of you know, Maisy had a great dental yesterday.
I got an A.M. PS today of 203 so I fed & gave a 1/2 unit to start and spotchecked:
this evenings PS at 7pm was 252..(Hmmm??) 
so I started her at 1 unit 
(where vet originally wanted me to start at anyways..)
