Does the insulin help keep weight off?

    I'm a little confused as to why Gracie is gaining weight. She has gained 4oz in just over a week. It isn't much, but that could easily add up fast.

    I thought at first she was constipated, but I started monitoring her bathroom habits and she isn't.

    She has been OTJ for just over 2 weeks. Her diet has not changed. She eats 4 3oz cans of FF Pate. Packaging recommends 1 can per 3lbs.

    Should I cut back to 3? I really don't know what else to do. My other thought is maybe the Prozinc helped regulate weight?

    She's OTJ and is able to use the glucose from her food better. It's possible that 4 cans a day is too much for her now. I'd try reducing it to 3 cans a day and track her weight on that for a couple of weeks.

    I must admit. I feel a little dumb not thinking of that myself. It almost seemed obvious after you said it. ;)

    Try getting some play time in with her if you can too...that might help her keep the weight off.
