Yesterday's Has it really been 2 days since my last post? Ugh... Things have been nuts. New classed and corporate politic games at work. I have also been pretty involved in Pig the past few days. These ups and downs are baffling me. I still am not certain if it is bounces or constipation. However, it seems that constipation fits a bit better. I mentioned a while ago that the lamb just seemed harder for him to process, but I had not noticed any real signs of it being overly constipating until the other day. I started giving Lactulose and we have been seeing some really good results. His vet has him on 1.5cc BID, but I have been giving 1cc every 8 hours to spread the dose out a bit and it is working great for now. In fact, he is looking a bit slimmer which tells me that he was getting backed up some and now things are moving out. Also, his numbers have been sliding down more today (the first day on 3 x dosing of Lactulose). From now on, I am going to just verbally threaten a dose increase... I had just decided to up him to 9.5u because I was not seeing enough green action on the dose when he decides to give me a preshot of 69. So, down to 8u. It may have been premature and I might have to take him back up, but at this point better safe than sorry. Maybe the constipation from the lamb has been masking his need a bit or maybe he is just hitting another reduction period. He does seem to run a bit higher right before a bout of decreases. Ahhhh.. But, so much of this is only conjecture and filling in the blanks. I don't have to know exactly why, just how to manage it appropriately. That silly Pig. Keeping me on my toes.
