Abby is going to the vet
As I mentioned in a previous post Abby has been throwing me some really weird numbers, so I contacted the shelter and got them to schedule her into the vet for a once over and a dental if she needs one. Her glucose numbers were really starting to confuse the daylights out of me and her numbers were going higher and higher so I started wondering if it might not be the insulin I was given by the shelter. It was the very last of the bottle so I thought maybe it was becoming ineffective so I went into the shelter and got a few doses of the insulin they have there for Chandler and the other diabetics. While I initially thought it might have been the insulin because she started dropping nicely, yesterday she went up 100 points after being given a dose of insulin, so I am at a complete loss as to what to do if her blood work and dental come back as unremarkable.
but the chances of that happening are pretty minimal, so I'm not going to worry about that until after she gets back.
When I was in the shelter I stopped by to see Chandler. Sadly he was still there, but I enjoyed spending some time with him. His nails were a bit overgrown so I went to clip them and they shattered. He was looking a bit scraggly too, so I mentioned my observations to the shelter and they are getting him into to the vet for a once over as well. Hopefully it is nothing..
