Kazu Update ❤️ He’s Doing Better

Kazu Update ❤️ They did not keep Kazu today. They said he’s too upset there at the vet and that wasn’t helping him feel better. They took out his IV & gave him sub Q fluids. I also got the sub Q fluids to have at home in case I need to give them to him. I got more of his nausea med too. I did get him to eat enough last night and this morning by putting it in his mouth. We are started him on the appetite stimulant today. His fructosamine test he was at 495 which is poorly regulated.  So we are also upping his Glargine/Lantus dose from 1 to 1.5 units. I also bought a few different low-carb wet foods to try. He’s gotten so picky. Maybe he needs more of a variety? I also got some different toppers that are all low-carb. Overall he acts like he feels much better. We just need to get him to want to eat more than a few bites at a time on his own. He has gotten on the table a couple times now to nibble on the food there so that’s a big improvement. At dinner tonight he did eat his first round of what I call his hors d’oeuvres all on his own. He likes his wet food in small chunks with the paste on top of them and you can’t have too many of them in the bowl at the same time touching each other or he won’t eat them. Lol! The second round he ate a few more bites on his own and then he ate a few more bites off of a spoon. He likes to be fed like a baby sometimes with his chunks of food on a spoon Lol! I don’t know what else to do, but if feed him like a baby because he’s gotta eat. So whatever it takes. Thank you again for all the well wishes! ❤️❤️❤️

Kazu is Home! ❤️

Kazu is home! ❤️ Thank you so much for all of the well wishes for him.  They left his IV in in case he needs more fluids tomorrow. He’s got an antibiotic (Clavamox) for his uti, a probiotic so he doesn’t get diarrhea., and they gave him regular insulin today to get his blood sugar down. We are supposed to try and get him to eat tonight hopefully he’ll be feeling better and will want to eat. He is to stay on his one unit dose of Lantus/Glargine until they get the results of his fructosamine test tomorrow. He goes back to the vet in the morning after his breakfast and morning, dose to be evaluated and decide if he needs more treatment there or if they can just take off his IV and he can come back home. I will keep you posted on how he is doing ❤️

Kazu is hospitalized at the vet today 😿

Kazu is at the vet being treated today. He is not feeling well. Friday Night I noticed he didn't want to eat as much and not eating from the table at night. We were still able to coax him to eat through the weekend with his paste treat on top of his food and gave him Cerenia tablet for nausea. This morning Kazu had an exam, bloodwork, and urinalysis done at our vet. He is slightly dehydrated, has too much glucose in his urine. He has never had ketones before. They said he had ketones now .5 , a slight UTI - Cocci 1+. His blood glucose was 379 before I took him to the vet. It was over 400 at the vet. They think this could be why he doesn’t feel good and doesn’t want to eat with all of these issues going on. They kept Kazu to give him an IV with fluids, she also said they were going to give him some regular insulin (I don’t know what that is) to try and bring his blood glucose down. Also based on what kind of UTI he has, they are starting him on Clavamox. They are also going to send off a fructosamine test. I really hope he’s going to be OK. I am so upset & worried about him. He has to be ok! We are picking him up later this afternoon. I will update you on how he’s doing then. I’m a stressed out worried sick mess! ❤️
