Previously. Kozmo update. We’ve struggled with pain management over the few days, and thanks to the FDMB spreadsheet (and my notes on it) we realised that the Gabapentin wears off after 8 hours and by +9 he’d be climbing the walls in pain and completely lost his appetite before pre-shot. He would gain it again at +1 (after the gaba kicked in). We tried increasing his dose to 50mg in the hope it had a longer tail but it too wore off at +8. So we’ve experimented with 25mg every 8 hours (3/day) starting two hours before AMPS and this is working (touch wood). It ties me to the house at AM+6 every day but we can’t see any way around this. Neither of us want to see Kozzie in such pain again. He was like this for two years before our previous vet prescribed Gabapentin for neuropathy due to OA, and I’m furious that (a) I was ignored for so long, and (b) that Kozmo had to endure such excruciating pain for so long. On a happier note, oh what a changed boy we have! It’s six weeks today that he was diagnosed (first of two DKA’s) and look how far he’s come! I’ve been living hour to hour feeling sick to my stomach that he’s either going to DKA or hypo any moment, and now with his lovely green numbers, he’s flourishing and I at long last have started to enjoy it. We’ve got a long way to go, but we live in hope that he’s one of the lucky kitties that slip into remission. Does Kozmo have to give me a heart attack by throwing a <50 before the dose can be decreased? How long shall I leave Kozzie’s post DKA in the subject line above? He’s doing really well with his self feeding. I’ve just now worked out a way to leave his food out during the day without our little dog getting to it - he loves eating from his auto-feeder on a kitchen chair! But, being a cat he loves it today but not necessarily tomorrow. Again, thanks to the FDMB and the indefatigable dedication, kindness and generosity of our GA’s, we’ve been able to come so far and will undoubtably be in constant need, but for today (hopefully) we’ll leave you in peace to help others! We’ll keep testing and updating our SS.
