Hi, everyone. This is a continuation of this thread. I'm continuing to give Ziggy 4.5U of Vetsulin, and his numbers have been fluctuating wildly. His nadir numbers have gotten very low (86 at noon today!) while his pre-shot numbers are the highest they've ever been. In terms of behavior, Ziggy is energetic and active and sweet as can be, and his litterbox behavior has really improved a lot. He's still hungry all the time and has gotten a little pickier about his food, but he's gained quite a bit of weight. He's been improving on nearly all fronts. Except for his shots. Ziggy has become violent during his shots, and claws and bites and hisses every time. He won't tolerate me even checking for fur shots any more. It's extremely frightening and I have to spend an hour afterward just trying to calm down. I got a new packet of syringes today and just gave him his first shot with them. Needless to say, it did not go well at all. He refused to let me get near him and scratched both of my hands and forearms so badly that there was blood all over the kitchen floor. I'm all bandaged up now but I'm absolutely terrified. Thankfully, he got his full dose, I think. I tried to feel for a fur shot but he dug his claws into my arm and I had to get away. He despises the new needles, too. It's just the act of getting an injection that makes him angry now. I think I'm going to have to develop a new technique for giving him shots. Even just touching his sides now triggers a violent reaction. I absolutely dread giving him his shots now because now it always means that I'm going to get hurt.
