    I HAVE to post about this because I was starting to think it would NEVER happen. I took Mia to see an Internal Medicine Specialist today. He was wonderful! We had a great discussion and were on the same page on pretty much everything. We are staying with ProZinc for now, and I have a new vial coming tomorrow. (Toward the end of the current vial, it is not working correctly. If I give what should be an appropriate dose, it slams her down low, so I have stuck with a really low does just to get through till I could get more. I suspect that is because, in the very beginning, I did not know to roll it several times each time. The first vet just said do not shake it. :facepalm: I had to learn to roll it through my own research - like everything else.)

    He said to call if I have any questions or concerns, but if not, he just wants us to come back every three months for an exam and probably a urinalysis and blood panel - that is it. He did not want to do a fructosamine or even a BG test today (he did a urinalysis). He said there was no reason to with all of my testing data. (Amen!)

    He asked ME what I thought a good dose would be to start out with on the new vial. (WOW!) I told him and explained why. He agreed and wrote up the prescription that way and said, "But, you know you can change the dose as needed though." We talked about and agreed upon a plan of action related to dose changes, but he is fine leaving it in my hands. (WOW again!) He said he wishes all of the people he works with were like me. :smuggrin: (I do not think the last vet would agree.)

    I am so very relieved. That is one stress off my shoulders! :)

    Nothing like having a vet that listens to the person on the front lines and incorporating that into their medical knowledge. I really miss my regular vet and can't wait till she comes back from maternity.

    Part of it is finding the right vet, but you also did your part by doing your research and going in informed. :)

    That is one of the great things about this board, and about testing at home. It helps empower FD parents with knowledge... not that this does anything when running in to stubborn or oblivious vet's tho :p

    Congrats!!

    Best feeling in the world isn't it? Our vet finally took on a new partner and I've been dreading meeting him. Turns out I should have had more faith in our vet, she would never hire someone who wasn't on the same page.
