Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 15 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.
What I always recommend to my clients when this happens is do your best. You feed him and give his insulin the best you can. What you could do is to slightly push him to have breakfast and insulin later in the day. Say around 9-a.m. or 10 a.m. and then that is only a 2-hour difference when you return. I am not very worried. He should be fine. A deviation once in a while usually is okay.
After the 12 a.m. dose you can return to the normal dosing time of 8 a.m. the following morning. He really must eat each time before you give his insulin.
If he was to have a problem I am more worried in the 2-4 hours after you give the injection he might have a low blood sugar event, but this is unlikely if you get him to eat.
