Thank you for the information provided. It is more likely that the diabetic condition, and glucose in the urine, predisposed Benji to the infection. Not he other way around. To ease your concern, it would not be unreasonable for you to ask your veterinarian to repeat the fructosamine before the insulin injection instruction. I would however then proceed with the insulin injection instruction at your visit. .
