This is Teddy. He came to FURS in the summer. A kind family rescued him from an abusive situation. Teddy was very skinny and weak. Once he was with FURS, we realized that he is VERY insulinomic. We treated him with pred twice daily, but it didn't seem to help. In facet, his blood glucose was dropping by the day. He needed the very expensive Diazoxide to control his glucose. Once on that, he improved slightly, but not as much as he needed.
Teddy needed surgery. FURS vet, Dr. Krupka successfully removed the very large tumor of his pancreas that was causing the insulinoma.
Teddy was able to be weened off his medication for now. FURS still checks his glucous often, as we know it can come back. Next time, it will hopefully be manageable without the huge pancreas tumor that he lived with before.
He is a sweet boy, and is finally starting to play. He loves crinkly toys, dangle toys, soft blankets to curl up in and of course, his special daily treat of Carnivore Care.
