Lacking a sophisticated home-lab in which to monitor Sasha's daily blood levels, I've been employing the ghetto blood-level check technique -- flipping up her lip to take a look at the color. I like to convince myself that it's pinker than it was 2 hours ago.

Turns out that I was not that far off with my sophisticated monitoring method. Sasha had a followup vet appointment today, and her PCV (packed cell volume) is 31! This is compared with last week, when it was 21.
She's still under strict supervision. She apparently managed to lose half a pound in a week, so the lucky pug gets more meals. She doesn't seem to mind the extra attention, since she's been ridiculously clingy lately, not allowing me to leave her sight.
