Soleil did well last night with the almost 1 unit of insulin. This morning I went to check on her in her room and there was no sign of vomit, and she had picked at the dry food last night, but didn't touch the little bit of wet food I gave her before I went to bed myself. I gave it a quick stir and gave it to Flash so that it wasn't wasted. There HAS to be a way I can get her to warm up to wet food so that I can get her off of the dry food. Yesterday I bought a small pack of chicken breast to boil up for her to try and get her to at least try that since she also won't lap up the turkey & turkey broth baby food with water. And she perks up for a Greenie or two (a dry treat; the version I have helps control hairballs). I read the bag to try and see the carb count, but carbs aren't listed on the label. It does appear to be high in protein. I've dug around online trying to find out if it's okay for her to have to try and entice her to eat or let her know that glucose test time isn't a punishment, but all I've found is that the best treats are pieces of boiled or raw meat. Right now the Greenies is the only thing showing me that she has an appetite and will eat, so I try to stick to only 3 - 4 total a day. Could it be possible that I need to try a different wet food format while trying different flavors (flaked / morsels instead of pate)? We also sat down this morning after giving her some fresh water and attempted to get a glucose reading from her again. This time instead of massaging her ear with only my finger, I used a washcloth wet with warm water. She sat still and didn't think much of what I was doing for a few minutes until I was ready to set the meter and get the lance stick ready. Today I was able to actually get blood to show up, but not enough for the meter to do a reading (received E1 error). I gave her a quick treat so that she wouldn't be afraid to come near me when she sees the small bag for the glucose meter, and let her go back to her closet to rest. I've watched a couple of videos for administering the glucose test. Some showed people using Vaseline to pool the blood. Doesn't that take away from the strip being able to get a reading just on the blood? Also, does anyone find that lancing the back of the ear is easier than the inside in regard to getting enough blood for the meter? Do I have to actually lance one of the spider veins in her ear (they're not the easiest to see regardless of how long I massage her ear(s))? She seems a little less stiff today than yesterday as well, so I'm not as panicked as I was. The real stressful part for me right now is how to get her off of the dry food, and onto a wet food diet. I feel like if I can't get her to do that that I won't be able to treat her the way I need to. I still have to read the links provided to me on my previous thread, and locate ketone test strips to pick up today. I have plenty of plastic grocery bags that I can line under a thin layer of litter so that I can test her urine the next time she goes. If I'm unable to be present when she's urinating, can I still use what's pooled on the plastic, or does it have to be warm? In regard to the buffet for Soleil and keeping Flash separate, since her diagnosis I keep them apart at feeding time, and I put away all of the food when she's enjoying her time outside of her room that way she doesn't eat the food he has, and he doesn't eat her prescribed food. They both have free roam of the house during the day when I'm at home, and this weekend will be the first time I have feeding times for Soleil where I'll have to put her back in her room for an hour or two. While Flash from what I can tell on the outside compared to Soleil is healthy, he will start a wet food diet once the bag of food I initially purchased for them is gone. Worst case I'll feed the dry food to the local stray cats that visit my backyard so it doesn't go to waste. While he appears to be healthy, is it the right decision to move Flash over to a wet food diet to avoid this same thing from possibly happening to him?
