I took Mickey to the vet this morning

May 17, 2003

I took Mickey to the vet this morning for a simple followup blood test. His sugar level was 18. That, Reader, is NOT good. NOT good at all. Normal blood sugar level for dogs and humans is 120ish. Eighteen is very close to seizure-level.

Doc gave the poor doggie some IV sugar (dexamathan-something) and some dextrose on the tongue to jack that number up a bit. We’re taking him off the insulin altogether for the weekend and bringing him in Monday morning for another followup.

Right now he’s sleeping on the chaise. I had some Berry Burst Cheerios before the vet appt and am filled with a lot of nervous energy, so I’m off to the gym.
