I wanted to have good news before posting an update. Where to begin ... After starting out promising - and confidently referring to Chance as an 'easy' cat (should have known better than to even think that) - things went downhill really fast. Last Monday his appetite was off and by Tuesday he didn't want food at all, was lethargic and looking miserable. I syringe fed and he vomited. Gave him sub-q fluids but he was still dehydrated and needed to be on IV. Wednesday he was admitted to the hospital with DKA. Based on blood panels and urinalysis, it appears he had been brewing a kidney and/or UT infection and the stress of moving to a new home tipped him over the edge. His WBC was high, potassium and sodium were really low and electrolytes, kidney and liver values were out of whack. The vet gave him a 50-50 chance of recovery. He's a sweet cat and we believed he deserved that chance, what with it being his name and all. By Saturday he was doing somewhat better, ketones gone and blood panels improved, so that evening we went to get him. While reviewing his treatment the vet became concerned that his last BG reading was kind of low so I grabbed his meter and tested. He was 20-something so she got her meter (with similar results), a syringe of dextrose and a tech came in with food and syringe fed him. We brought him home and broke out the Karo, tested and fed until the numbers got up to a safe level. It was the first time I've had to treat a hypo and I glued his whiskers to his face. He's been home for 48 hours now and is doing better. Still needs assistance with eating and will be getting fluids, antibiotics and supplements for awhile but last night he jumped onto a chair and took a proper cat bath. He's very particular about his appearance and spent over half an hour fixing the mess I caused. Hopefully he's out of the woods and I'm more optimistic that he will fully recover.
