    Yesterday

    Good morning everyone.

    Buddy is just working his way higher. So confusing. he has his appy back and acting normal although yesterday he did sleep a bit more than usual and wasn't screaming at me every 2 hours.

    I bumped his dose just a bit but thinking I should have just bumped it the full .25, see how today goes and I may do that tonight.

    It't just so weird, There must be something going on, I will give it a few days and then take him in.

    Hope everyone has a great day.

    I hope everything is alright with Buddy. Sometimes their numbers are just so confusing:confused:

    I have checked him over hoping to find a wound or something from the fight a few days ago, but nothing. It makes me nuts when there is "no reason" LOL I mean, I'm sure there is a reason it's just not obvious. Gah!

    Sometimes they just have a few wacky days. We have lots of them.

    Hang in.

    That does seem a bit unusual for him - after all he seems to love his blues and greens. I guess I'd try not to get too excited about a pre-shot value being a little higher than what you're used to....it's how well he's shaking that off during the mid-cycle that's important. Let's see how he does the rest of the day. BTW, we don't change the dose based on pre-shot values - typically you want to look at nadirs to make that decision. And his nadirs aren't terrible by any means... :)

    No I know this. I am bumping his dose based off his nadirs had been running in the 60s and 70s but the last few days they are running in the 120s to 150s

    I am trying to be patient.

    Also , when I click on the SS link in my sig, it is taking me to the 2019 SS . Not sure why. Is it just me?

    ETA: Think I fixed the SS issue.

    I wonder where he goes during the bottom half of the p.m. cycle? The best dosing decisions are made when you have 100% of the picture.

    Have you checked for ketones ?

    Has he ever had a dental?

    I will be testing his later half of the pm cycle over the next few days. I have been trying to catch him for keytones hopefully soon. hasn't been an issue in the past. It has been a while since he has had a dental. I will be taking him in sometime in the next week to have him checked over. Frustrating.
    Thank you for your insight.

    We did just have that Full moon thing. (can't remember which one it was) I think I am leaning more towards that! LOL

    He hasn't seen numbers this high for so long I'm sure he is not feeling good. Mostly acting normal but just a bit off.

    As high as he has been the last few days and with the Curve today Should I just take him back up to 1U to try to bring his numbers down until I can get him to the vet or at least figure out what has happened? I don't like him being this high after so long at almost normal numbers, I am sure it is making him feel poopy. Or should I just wait and see?

    I do plan on getting some good tests in overnight as well.

    He hasn't really seen these numbers since back in October. (except a few here and there.)

    When Moey did this, I held the dose 3 days or 6 cycles before I increased.

    Wow Moey is doing great! Did you figure out why he did it? or just one of those things? He has never done this (like this) so I am just at a loss, he was doing so well. I hope there is not "something else" going on.

    Moey is trying to work this new dose. We'll see how he's looking once his depot adjusts.:nailbiting:
    I think Moey's elevated #s were due to a change in cat food and a snotty nose. I was on pins and needles waiting for that 6th cycle to arrive for his much needed increase.

    I wonder if Buddy has an infection brewing from his skirmish with your civvie. Sometimes bite abscesses can remain undetected until you see missing fur and swelling/drainage.
    I hope Buddy will surprise you with some better #s. You hear that Buddy...a dosecrease is looming!:cat:

    I hope you can figure out what is going on with Buddy and his numbers come back down soon. Sending prayers.

    He did not want to get up for dinner. I feel so bad for him he is not feeling well. Holding this dose for now. I will be calling vet in the morning, don't want to let this go on much longer.
