    Just a quick hello to introduce myself. I have 4 cats, 2 dogs, 2 rabbits and fish. Love them all to pieces. My oldest cat Oyster was diagnosed a week before Christmas as diabetic. He is currently 16. The vet has put him on Purina d/m wet food which he hates and I have changed him to Fancy Feast Classics. The vet gave me 29 gauge 40 syringes but I now use I use BD Ultrafine 31 gauge needles with 8mm (15/64") and 2 units of Caninsulin at the 40U (which I've balanced out to 5 units using the u100 needle that I use)He's been tested only once so far (Christmas Eve) and his numbers were still reading extremely high. I will be purchasing a glucose meter and doing a curve on him at home I believe. I am also seriously considering switching insulin to Lantus or Levemir. What a learning curve I am on. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
