    Yesterday

    I woke at 2 a.m. with a Grandpa- sized weight upon my shoulder and his handsome face about 2 inches from mine. He let me know in no uncertain terms that he was hungry. He polished off a 3oz can of food before stretching out beside me, putting his paw in mine and going to sleep.

    He just demanded breakfast and ate well again so we gave him 1.5u of insulin. We will use a version of SLGS instead of TR and adjust as needed. We are going to take a conservative approach.

    Thank you all for the messages, the vines, the friendships. Our old miracle guy loves you all!

    Same here. Do you want to break it to him that chocolate chip cookie cake is not on his diet? I know he'll remind me that it isn't on mine either.

    Why tell him. At his age he should be allowed to do as he pleases.

    Food seems to trigger his pancreatitis flares. Every time I get lax and let him eat bad stuff he gets really sick.

    I know just feel sorry for the guy. Just like my dad at his age they should be able to eat what they want.

    I know, but he gets quite spoiled. When he waits with everyone at the door for treats when Trixie comes in, I can't say no.

    Sometimes it does for Murphy too- especially if he eats a lot at one time. Have you tried digestive enzymes? By supplying the enzymes the pancreas needs to make, they can decrease the work of the pancreas. I think they have been very helpful to Murphy - something to think about
    what a glorious morning for you both!!

    Fingers crossed it makes s difference. Note that there’s not a daily dose of it, but rather you need to put some in with all this food.

    I use this brand too, as per Carol's recommendation. I think it helps Teasel's GI tract to keep ticking along.
