Violet's Trip to the Vet

Miss Vi had to go see the vet techs this morning for another glucose test.  Unfortunately her number was down - 56 this time vs 63 last.  Buggers!!  So - since she is still doing very well - energetic, good appetite, maintaining weight, etc. the vet made an adjustment to her dosage of Prednisone.

There are several treatment options available on this journey - increasing the prednisone, adding a second medication to the mix and also a surgical option.  We are still pretty early in this whole thing and since she is doing so well it gives us the luxury of going slow to find the right mix of things for her body.  She goes back on the 13th of February for another quick check.

I did get some cute snaps of my sweet girl while we were there....
