    Noted on spreadsheet all along I thought I was shooting 0.10 units, but when I was looking at the syringe it was closer to 0.25 units. You will see 0.25 units in the cell now but this is
    NOT AN INCREASE I HAVE BEEN SHOOTING THE SAME AMOUNT I HAVE BEENSHOOTING ALL ALONG

    I INCREASED TYLER'S DOSE TO 0.5 UNITS LAST NIGHT 6-15 -20 NIGHT CYCLE

    Wishing you all a good day and our kitties stay safe

    Hi Ladies
    As you can see I have increased Tyler's Dose to 0.5 units on 6-15-20 Night Cycle
    I don't know where these high pre shots and the test during both cycles are coming from
    I understand they aren't extremely high , but they are getting higher

    Do you think I should give it one more week at the 0.5 units?
    He is acting totally normal

    I'm going to weigh him tomorrow morning, I keep a log of his weight
    When I pick him up he seems to have gotten fatter, the big load
    I have mentioned in others posts before being diagnosed he was 23 lbs
    At diagnosis he was 18 so I was happy about that
    After awhile he went back p to 19.6 lbs
    Who knows what he weighs now, I'll find out in the AM
    My vet wanted him to at least get down to 16 lbs, he is a very big cat

    He only eats about maybe 2-1/2 cans of FF Classic Pate
    So that's about 245 calories a day
    Sometimes he will only eat 2 cans a day 198 calories

    This cat is a lazy lazy blob
    He was never very active at all, just eats, pees, poops and sleeps
    Once in awhile he'll get a burst of energy , oh boy he's playing with his toys
    I guess he's just not burning calories

    Could it be if he has put more weight on that could cause these higher numbers
    Probably not right

    He is relentless when he wants more food
    Just won't shut up

    I got so used to seeing those beautiful green numbers back in
    Feb, March and April
    and now these

    Any thoughts?
    I'll starve this load if I have to lol just kidding
    Thanks guys :cat:

    When is the last time Tyler went to the vet? Got any recent labs? Has the vet looked at his teeth to see if he needs a dental?

    With TR, we hold doses a max of 10 cycles. You could try an increase.

    Sorry.....I didn’t want to be redundant with @Wendy&Neko since she answered the question.

    She said:
    As long as you can monitor, it looks like you have room for a dose increase of 0.25u. Just be aware that sometimes it only takes a few cycles to kickstart the greens so be alert :)
