    Did you skip the shot last night as well?

    Has he eaten? Can you get another test right now and see where he is? Can you monitor if you give insulin?

    We gave him his shot last night. I did test again about 20 min after the first one and he was at 138. I will be working from home today to keep an eye on him.
    He's eating a bit, but not as much as he usually eats. EDIT - he's eating more now

    Was the 138 after food or without food?

    If you can monitor, you can give him the shot. Don't fill him up with food. Feed a part of his breakfast at +1 and +2. Since this lower than you have shot before you want to test at +1 and +2 (and feed a tsp of food after each test).

    It would be a big help to us if you can set-up your signature? It's basically a summary of the information we need about your cat to give you advice. The spreadsheet and signature are the things we look at when asked for advice. It saves us asking you the same questions again and again especially when the question is time critical like stalling or low numbers. It also saves you the effort of giving us the information every time you post!

    Here's how you can set-up your Signature:
    • In the Menu, under your user name, click on Signature.
    • Add info we need to help you:
      • Caregiver & kitty's name
      • DX: Date
      • Name of Insulin (do not include dose or frequency)
      • Name of your meter
      • Diet: "LC wet" or "dry food" or "combo"
      • Dosing: TR or SLGS or Custom (if applicable)
      • DKA or other recent health issue (if applicable)
      • Acro, IAA, or Cushings (if applicable)
      • Spreadsheet link. Please put the signature link on the bottom line of your signature information, on its own, so it is easy to find.
    • Please do not put any information about your location in the signature for security reasons. If you wish to add your country location, please add it to your profile.
    • There is a limit of two lines. You may separate info with commas, dashes, | etc.
    • Be sure to click the 'Save Changes' button at the bottom.

    So it's good that he's staying flat. Feed him a little (save some for +1 and +2) and give him the shot. I can check back for your +1 and +2.

    That's either a food bump or he's headed up in a bounce. Please get a +2?

    Thanks for setting up your Signature :)

    Sorry for the late reply. Looks like he is bouncing, so you can take a break from tests till PMPS.

    Congrats on shooting your lowest preshot so-far! :cool:

    @Kady77 Welcome
    In your title it should be AMPS not AMBG
    If you gave insulin yesterday morning can you fill in the dose in the U cell :bighug::cat::cat:
    I see in your signature you have LC/Combo
    Are you feeding any dry food ? If so you will need to follow SLGS method and change it on your signature and add it to your spreadsheet up top
