    I'm Leilani and my fur-kid is TK - it stands for The Kitty... I didn't name him. :p

    TK is 12 years old and was adopted in December '16 from a family member who claimed he had chronic renal failure (based on a google search, not a vet visit) and was unable to care for him. He was grossly overweight for most of his life and on pretty crappy dry food too. We immediately got him on canned food and an enzyme/probiotic supplement and noticed huge improvement in his weight, fur, and energy within a few weeks.

    His first vet visit was 02/17/17, where he was gladly cleared of any kidney issues, but diagnosed with diabetes.

    We updated his diet to canned in AM (Whole Earth Farms chicken morsels, 3.7% carbs) and raw + freeze-dried raw in evening (Primal Raw, Northwest Naturals FD raw).

    Home testing with TRUEtrack meter. Average pre-insulin numbers around 250 (AM/PM pre-feed).

    Started on Lantus insulin 03/09. Vet recommended 1u BID, but he went hypo after 2nd dose. Reduced to 0.5u pending vet's response.
