In this case, I'd suggest also getting a blood ketone meter (works the same way as a glucometer). The test strips for ketone meters are not cheap but you don't need to test for ketones as often as you need to test blood glucose levels. I really think they're a very worthwhile investment for ketone-prone kitties, especially in circumstances like yours and your hubbie's. I suggest giving your vet a phone call to let him know. I hope he will prescribe something for Wenz. The right anti-nausea treatment can make an absolute world of difference to a kitty who's having trouble eating. Mogs .
