My cat Shelby will be 8 years old in December 2005. He weighed 16 pounds and all of a sudden one day I picked him up and noticed he wasn't as heavy. He has asthma attacks when it is wet and damp out so have pills (NOT PREDNISONE-got him off of that a few years ago but may have caused the diabetes) to give him when he needs them. Shelby was diagnosed with diabetes on Oct. 21, 2005. Started on Vetsulin. On it for a month and a half. No luck at all in regulating his levels. All the Vetsulin did was drive me crazy with the rapid drops and rises. Was almost always high PS. Only once did I get levels in the 100s, mostly above 300 and above 250. Starting PZI BCP on November 23rd or 24th. Feed canned food now.


I do home test and always test before each shot. Have been shooting at 7:00 AM and 7:00 PM.


Shelby also has asthma. It only acts up when it rains. He is on Aminophylline. 1/4 tab once a day as needed. (really need to think of an inhaler for him as the pill is for only as needed0

7:00am 535 Shelby played really hard for about an hour before I tested, fed and gave him his shot. Reason for high reading?! Gave 1/4 pill for asthma.
+11 207 All my cats were screaming for food so tested Shelby at this time and then fed them all early. Did not shoot at this time. Shelby ate a lot of food here. More than usual for him.

12/21
7:00am 398 Shot usual dosage but wasn't really sure if should. I did because he is almost always has a high PS reading in the evening so made my judgment according to the pas PMPS readings. 1/4 pill for asthma.
8:00pm Late giving shot tonight. Gave .8U because of his low levels lately.

12/22
7:00am 177 Fed. Will take reading in half an hour to decide what to shoot.
