Just got home after being gone in hospital for 5 days having my baby. Set kitties up w auto feeder with young again zero carb food and freeze dried treats. Had care taker fill feeder daily with measured portions and cats got one can of wet food in morning and fresh water daily. My husband came home every day from hospital and gave Ozzy a shot once a day and he missed a shot once a day for 4 days. We had a baby camera set up so we could feed the auto feeders but the hospital had bad service so after day 1 the camera wasnt available to us. Just got home and Ozzy seems a little out of it. his feeder had all food compartments full and wet food from this morning was barely touched. When camera was working we saw the other cat going to the feeders mostly but when my husband came home to give insulin he did see Ozzy eat some so I know he didn't go completly without food the entire time. But I am really not sure how much he ate while I was gone. I just tested Ozzy's ketones on the nova max ketone tester and it came back with 0.9 as the result. Is this normal?? Here are his numbers last few days. Sorry online SS is not up to date as we have been using notepad. Ozzy is tested everyday and receives insulin every day. 2/3: 7:05am 264, 1u lantus 2/4: 9:25am 358, 1.25u lantus Husband overshot because his number is higher than normal. He never goes over 300 usually 2/5: 9:15am 234, 1u lantus 2/6: 3:30 pm 205, ketones 0.9 I am actually surprised Ozzy's numbers have not been higher since he missed a dose every day. On insulin his Preshot numbers have usually been higher. Maybe there is something to the YA zero carb?? It is 4pm now. Ozzy gets insulin at 6:30 pm. What do you guys think? Are ketones normal? Usually the meter ALWAYS says "LO". Should I give him insulin now or wait till his scheduled time ? Maybe kitty is just stressed from me being gone? He gets major separation anxiety. He is eating now. I have been very stressed about what to do with my kitty while i went to hospital to deliver my baby for MONTHS! I did the best I could and just hope he is ok. This is the longest i have ever left him since his DKA episode and diabetes diagnosis over a year ago. Thanks in advice for any help!
