Well I haven't posted in a while but thats because nothing out of the normal was happening.
Fish: Everyone is good and I have 3 little fry getting big and strong.
Human: Now this is where that gets interesting. My friend is cat sitting. Now this cat is 15 years old and diabetic, like needing two insulin shots a day. So she gave him his shot and food last night and went to bed. Well the cat never ate the food and sent himself into a diabetic coma, great thing to wake up to at like 4 in the morning. She sat with him and tried to get him to drink some sprite. She called the vet at 8 am and had her make an emergency house call. Now the vet knows this cat and knows the owner is in Ireland for a month. She checked his blood and confirmed the low blood sugar. Well when she left the cat was still in coma but he might make it out.
The vet gave him a 30% chance to live through the night if only because his age. We went over about 6 hours later and sat with her for another 4 hours. In that time the cat started seizing. Unfortunately once they start to seize, while in a diabetic coma their pretty much gone.
Now I feel terrible for my friend because it was the first night she was there. But she is a vet tech so she does know what she is doing, thank god. Yet another unfortunate thing is the owner has yet to even get off the plane to Ireland, and we're not really expecting the cat to make it through the night. Last I heard he was still seizing every 15 mins or so, poor kitty.
I talked to my sister (vet tech for 8 years) who advised us to give him sugar water, lemonade with extra sugar or something good and sweet to try to pull him out. Even if it wont work we have to try to at least get him to make it until she gets off the plane...
Feel free to message me any questions, I'll try to help the best I can!
