Itís been a while and Earl is doing great.
His last two tests were 120 and 140.
He now jumps up on his chair after meals so I can pick him up and put him in hammock for injections.
Itís been about 3 months and itís now gotten extremely better and no more worries about getting medicine in Earl safely and less painful.

The hammock works great and Earl likes the massages,treats, and back scratching when he is up there.I use a small clamp to pinch skin for tent and I can give shot one handed.

I am thinking about dry prescription food but it is made from bi products which I think can cause problems later on.
They basically make it out of what they throw away for humans.
I may try some heart and liver meats from local butcher.
