Good news about Milka’s health! Milka spent the day at the vet today to undergo various tests. His glucose curve results came back normal for the first time since I discovered he had diabetes. (A glucose curve shows when the glucose level is the highest and when it is lowest relative to help if they are receiving the proper type and dose of insulin)
It doesn’t hurt that Milka is cute and sweet. The staff and vets at the Granville Island Vet Hospital spoiled him today! He sat in many a’ staff’s lap (of course!) and in their sweaters turned blankets.
To administer the glucose curve, a small blood sample is drawn every 2 to 4 hours. Check out Milka’s poor little spindly legs! Two legs shaved and pricked for the glucose curves performed in the past few weeks.
To make sure that Milka is okay, he’ll have a few more tests in one month.
But for now, he can celebrate! He can have a little bit more variety in his food. In addition to the broccoli and broccolini he’s been eating, he can now have brown rice, sweet potatoes or pureed pumpkin with his kibble. I think he’ll love it!
