Snickers was taken to the ER on the evening of May 3 and seemed to be near death. We didn't realize there was any problem up till then, but in hindsight there were some signs we didn't take notice of like excessive water drinking and high urine volume going on for perhaps 6 months. It was touch and go for several days but she made it through and has been home now 4 days. We are trying to get insulin dosing figured out and she is no where near regulated as of yet, usually in the 550 or 600 range before insulin injection and getting down to about 350 at nadir for the first curve I did on day 2. We started at 1 unit of glargine twice a day but after 2 days of mediocre results we bumped that to 2 units twice a day. Still we wind up back at 550 before the next shot so today I tried a 1 unit booster (still Glargine) at the 6 hour mark. For the regular shot tonight at 8:30 PM we were at 460, which is better than 550 or 600 in my mind. We will see how the nadir tonight looks and what we wind up at tomorrow morning. We need to get food figured out. She had been on dry her whole life. She came out of the ER DKA trauma skin and bones so we have been giving her Nutro wet food and she has been eating it well. We ordered a dry food called "Young Again" which hasn't arrived yet which claims to be a good diabetes dry food and claims to get a good number of cats into remission. We are also giving her 1 ml Pet-tinic and 2.5 ml VetOne RenaPlus Potassium Gluconate twice a day per the ER vets instructions. I'm poking her ears frequently for blood samples. She tolerated it better than I would have expected to start but is getting angry with me now -- but we need data so that is that.
