    Cabergoline from Wedgewood finally arrived yesterday, it was ordered 12/3. I added 0.25ml to his food this morning and it ate the food just fine. The dose is 10mcg/kg. I decided to give it AM since he gets other meds PM.

    Hopefully the Cabergoline has a positive impact. His dose has increased by2 units (now at 11U BID) since about a month ago. I will periodically update this tread as time progress.

    Good luck with the cabergoline. Responses to cabergoline have really varied, especially with timing, but all of the kitties on it seem to have some positive results over time.

    What does this mean that results have varied with timing? What is the best time of day to give cabergoline?

    How is Snuffles doing now? It's been a couple of months that you've been giving the Cabergoline. I don't see that you have a spreadsheet so I am wondering if you are able to give less insulin now than when you began? Thank you!

    What I meant is, how long after starting cabergoline before you start seeing effects. A week to 10 days to a couple months.

    Snuffles has been on the Cabergoline for exactly two months. The increase in insulin needs has decreased a lot and BGs are lowerI get a lot of PS' 110-130 now.

    Thank you. What kind of pre-shot numbers did you have before the Cabergoline? I wish I could see 100s... maybe one day!
