    I just bumped Emmett's dose down to 4.25 iu this morning. This is the second cycle at that dose. He just scored a 43. I just fed him 1/8 can Wellness Turkey & Salmon.

    If you look at the mmol "World" tab you'll see that I fed him a new food, Wellness CORE 95% Chicken, I'm not sure if it's playing a role in that 43 number.

    Anyway, question would be for tomorrow morning. Should I hold this dose? I've had this problem before with Emmett...where I've reduced the dose and he still is falling. Do I wait for the 4.25 depot to build/reduce at a 4.25 dosage or should I drop to 4.0 iu? From what you've all told me before is that this is probably the 4.5 still working.

    Hmm...so 4.25 or 4.0 iu?

    30 minutes since Wellness Turkey & Salmon. Gone from 43 to 45. ie. Nothing...

    Just gave him some Wellness Chicken Morsels in gravy...higher carb. That should get him up a lil.

    Definitely the 4.5 unit depot talking tonight. Up Emmett! :eek: However, I think you'd be OK going down to 4.0 units tomorrow. It's not protocol, but given Enmett was on higher doses, still has a decent sized depot, he's in a hurry down the dose scale, and you can't monitor during the day, I think 4.0 units is safer.

    ya, okay. I will do 4.0 units. He did dip to 49 yesterday, but I kept it at 4.5 for another cycle to see how he reacted -- he seemed okay in that evening cycle but I didn't want to play with 4.5 again this morning. But ya, 4.0 iu tomorrow sounds like a plan.
