Thank gawd I have finally found understanding owners. Phoebe was diagnosed 8 months ago with IBD inflammatory bowel diesease. Was constipated off on her whole life. We switched to wet FF chicken, to lose weight she was a 20 pound girl. She kept loosing weight over the last year, about 4 months ago we noticed it was muscle mass. Took to vets (she is petrified) did bunch of tests, she had pancreantitis on top of IBD. She had lost 5 pounds in a years time. Put her on meds, still didn't stop her loosing weight. So vet put her on steroids to help, she developed diabetes. She is still loosing weight, we are now at 13.5 pounds. She was hospitalized 2 weeks ago because for a day she would not eat. She spent 3 days back and forth to vets and home for observation and fluids. Monitoring, blood tests. She did not eat for 4 days. Only iv fluids. She is back home with us and started eating on the 5th day. Joy joy joy. But blood sugars remained in the 400s and 500s at vets. She lost another pound. We have bought a alphatrak, same as vets, and are doing blood sugar every 4 hours. It's been exhausting and I am so glad to be apart of this group. She is now in the 300s and one time has been down to 256.
