    My baby is at his regular cattery and refused to eat his dinner. The lady tried for 2 hours.

    He can be finicky. Due to his two previous DKA events this year (both while at the cattery) she is concerned that no food = no insulin = ketones. Again.

    I am terrified and in tears all evening. Couldn't eat much of my pre-birthday dinner.

    Please send confident, relaxing and hungry vines to my baby.

    Thank you!

    I feel like everything is out of control. He ate nothing all night but she gave him 1 unit anyway. He went down to 60 in the night but then went up to "HI" in the morning and he refused all food again except one of the few cans I had labelled "Emergency higher carb food for hypo" so she gave him that out of desperation.

    So now...he won't relax, he's intensely stressed, won't eat except high carb food, and he ne no longer trusts the lady anymore after all the vet stuff last time.

    I am TERRIFIED of ketones.

    He has to eat so I suggest you let them feed high carb food if that's what works. You don't want to risk another bout of DKA from lack of food and insufficient insulin.

    Agree with Kris. Any food at this point is the main priority. It's just temporary until you get back from your trip.

    Yes, I am a bit better about this now. He has been eating various FF and some can't be too bad because at 5pm the lady said his BG was 106 so that's good!

    I just want him to survive until we're home and we can get him back on track.

    Thank you for understanding and helping me.
