    Yesterday Caber 147

    Tried to get lactulose yesterday but you need a script. Ollies vet won't give one because it's has sugar.

    Will probably do dosecrease tonight, didn't want to do it when I have to leave for work. In hindsight this morning would have been better as I'll be home until +5. Tomorrow I will have to leave right after shot and work all day.

    I wonder how successfully I could mail you a bottle of lactulose; we don't need a script here.

    Not having any despite subq fluid, miralax and pumpkin. She doesn't have motility enough to get it out. Its like every 4-5 days she goes but it is normal poops.

    I'm willing to try if you are. Maybe list it as something other than medicine though.

    Nice to see some blue today. I hope you the lactulose gets to you safely.

    For motility, you might want to try cisipride. It is RX and must be compounded (in sugar free base). Many think laculose is not appropriate for a diabetic, but the sugar is not digested so it doesn't affect BG. You monitor enough to determine if there would be any BG impact if you are worried, but many here depend on it to keep things moving with no impact to BG.

    I know about the lactulose, I used it for Smokey, but can't convince this vet. I will ask about cisipride.
