Just a quick update on Max. I can't believe he's been home a week today. The improvement is amazing!! He's eating like a horse and is so much stronger. He's getting oral liquid meds - an antibiotic and one for icky poops - and he's not happy about them, but he's taking his insulin injections like a trouper!! He goes back for a check-up next week and I can't wait to see how much weight he's gained. So it's "so far, so good" for Max.
I'll try to get some new pics done and posted this week. I can't wait till all the shaved places grow out. Right now he looks like he got a particularly bad poodle cut!
Just a reminder for all you cat owners - keep an eye on your cat's habits. If she starts drinking more water and, as a result, peeing a lot more, whisk that feline to the vet - she may have diabetes. As a veteran of now three cats with diabetes I can tell you that it's manageable and worth the small extra effort. Getting the diabetes under control at the beginning can be frustrating, but when your efforts pay off, it's easy to deal with. There are a lot of good sites that have good info about feline diabetes. My best tip is to invest in a good glucometer and learn how to check your cats blood glucose levels from time to time. It's easy peasy, as they say.
