Oliver in Lynn MA

April 8, 2011--From Oliver's vet tech:
Venita, Oliver was adopted this past Monday!!!
Whoot!! ************************************************************************ March 12, 2011--From the Vet Tech who is promoting Oliver's adoption:
Just checking in to see if we can update Oliver's blog and pic. He had blood and urine run last week and we cleaned his teeth last Mon!! His foster people love him but he needs a home of his own where someone is with him more than they are. He is the 12 yr old diabetic from a couple months ago. I also have a woman willing to donate so he can have his insulin for up to 8 mos (currently on Prozinc). He has angels, now he needs a home :)
**************************************************************************** Initial post, 1/5/11--Oliver is a 12 YO, declawed, grey tabby in Lynn, MA. This indoor-only, thin 9 pound, neutered male is currently in a foster home. Although he LOVES his foster Mom, she feels it is better for him to be in a home where he can get more attention. Oliver is a sweetheart to all and loves attention. He's OK with older children, but not great with other cats (hisses) or young children (hides and hisses). Oliver was diagnosed diabetic a couple months ago by a previous owner's vet. There is no history of DKA or hypoglycemia. Oliver is FIV/FeLV negative and up-to-date on FVRCP and rabies vaccines. Oliver's rescuer (not his foster Mom) is a certified vet tech and runs occasional curves on him with a human glucometer to adjust his dose. Oliver is currently on ProZinc, 3U BID. His nadir on his curve two weeks ago was in the 200s with preshots in the 300s. Oliver has experienced PU/PD, weight loss, and hind limb weakness. (His neuropathy is improving.) He eats Wet DM and Fancy Feast, and dry Science Diet. When Oliver first started diabetes treatment, he was treated with antibiotics for a possible urinary tract infection. He has no current behavior or other health problems. Potential adopters can see his vet records and speak to his vet and to his rescuing vet tech and foster Mom.
