Dusty who has diabetes was recently admitted by the Vet. He was a very sick kitty and I had to spoon feed him over the long weekend. His numbers went from incredible high to very low in the course of 24 hours which the vet said was consistent with the diagnosis of Pancreatitis. He has started treatment and he says he is looking for some sort of improvement in the next 24 hours. My questions to this group is: What caused this and was there anything I could have done to prevent it? I am feeling kind of guilty even though we used low carb food. Is 24 hours too short to show signs of improvement? I get the impression that if no improvement is made in that timeframe that he would suggest we pull the plug. If he does not get any worse would you give it more than 24 hours? What questions should I be asking the Vet about his treatment? The vet said Dusty will be in the hospital for approx. 4 days. Assuming he get better and recovers what steps can I take to make sure this does not happen again? The vet has said Dusty's chances of recovery are better than 50/50 but certainly not 90%. Is that an accurate assessment? As always any help would be appreciated.
