Hi
Customer
This has happened before when his parents go away. Seems to be upset
Customer
Tearing at corners of rugs
When was his last full meal?
Customer
2 days ago
Bless his heart— it does sound like he might be having some separation anxiety from his parents. Dealing with diabetes on top of that is super stressful for you and him.
Have you tried hand feeding him? Sometimes a little extra TLC will help him cope with this added stress?
Customer
i feel bad, I just don’t want him to have low sugar.
Customer
Oh no I haven’t I will try that now
Customer
It is working
Yay!! Sometimes when they are missing their loved ones feeling a little extra love from others goes a long way. May take longer to get a meal in him that way, but if it works it’s worth it.
Customer
thanks so much. They left medication with the name mirtazapine
Customer
I was nervous to give it on an empty stomach, should be okay if he is eating now right?
Mirtazpine is an appetite stimulant. It’s ok to give it on an empty stomach, but since he’s eating for you he may not need it.
Customer
Oh okay great! Thanks for your help
You’re welcome. Glad I could help. Please feel free to message me again if you have any further questions I can help you with. Thanks for coming to JustAnswer!
