    Looks like you did 0.2? I think that’s fine. I might even have gone 0.4 especially since she’ll be at the vet. But if you already shot 0.2 stick with that.

    I agree with Rachel. At least she got some insulin. :)

    For the Day 1 drop, the first reading was at the vet on a pet meter, and the second was at home on a human meter, wasn't it?

    It can be a pretty big difference in high numbers, and a smaller difference at low numbers. I've read anywhere from 30-50% different, so in the 500's, that could be 150 points or more. Plus number inflation from vet stress vs. being relaxed at home. Mary is clearly responding to the insulin, but I think the difference between that initial 512 and the nadir probably isn't as big as it seems on the surface. As you collect your home data, you'll get a better sense of what she needs right now. I would probably dismiss that first cycle from your decision making though since between the meters and the stress, it isn't as reliable an indicator as your home cycle data.

    Ok... shes here. +2 is 136 on the vets meter..... She knows its still early in the cycle so is going to have stuff on standby. About had a heart attack, last 10 minutes of the drive she started talking and gettimg restless.... I thought for sure I had done her in!

    If she's very underweight her responses to insulin can be more erratic. Their fat tissue factors into their response but I'd have to research the exact details.

    She has never been a big cat, maybe 8lbs tops in her prime. She is down to just under 6 currently and it is night and day difference.
