    Hi There,

    I was having tests in hospital yesterday so didn't do Tucker's shots or testing. Apparently he came off his bounce following a really low Wed, and a reduction to 4 units and was 5.9 last night PMPS. Claire waited half an hour and retested and he had gone 6.9 and she shot 4 units. No testing was done afterwards. This morning I am stalling because he is 5.2 (94). Suggestions?

    I’d give the normal dose of 4 units.
    He’s doing well after the bounce.
    You can steer the curve with food if needed.

    Thanks Bron! I gave him the normal 4 dose and will retest and steer with food. If he is doing this well we may be able to think another reduction after 6 doses??

    He’ll earn a reduction if he drops under 3....
    Or stays in normal numbers for 7 days.

    He's had a really good day. One sort of bouncy number but healthy nadirs and a very happy cat.
