    Zoozey is a bit high today, which I expected since I knew this visit to my parents would cause him a little stress. But he has come down his AM shot. I checked his ketones using the Nova Max meter at 11am CST, and it read 0.3mmol/L. Should I be concerned? Is that high?

    We're headed back home tomorrow, so I expect his numbers will come down (after his 1 month post DKA check-up at the vet on Fri).

    You can find information about the ketone levels and your meter online. This is from your instruction manual:
    Based on this information, I wouldn't be worried. From what the information above indicates, it looks like above 1.5mmol/L is when you need to be concerned.

    I did, but I forgot and left it at home. (I'm at my parents' house)
     
  5. Barbi,
    I don't have my nova max manual handy, so not sure what .3 means. But I did a search and found this -

    Scroll down to Melanie's comments. I think but don't know for sure that .3 would be considered "trace". Something to keep an eye on later today.

    Thanks Sienne. Our internet is out here and I'm having to do this from my phone.

    His +6 is 204, so his numbers are coming down. Yay!
