    April 2019
    Cat's name & age: Theo; 7.5 years Flame Point Siamese
    Diabetes onset: January 2019
    Insulin: Prozinc (started at 2 units; now at 3.5 units in a.m. and 3 units in p.m.)
    Glucometer: Accu Chek Aviva Nano
    Food: Purina Pro Plan Veterinary DietsĀ® DMĀ® Savory Selects Dietetic Management Feline Formula; he eats a bit over 2 cans per day (good appetite)
    Other: he has severe neuropathy. I started supplementing (April 10th) with the B12 & folic acid mixture found in Zobaline (same percentages). I discussed with my vet (he was not aware of this commercial supplement for diabetic cat neuropathy) and he gave me a prescription to have it compounded at a local pharmacy since it was not available in Canada. The pharmacy made the capsules with only the two vitamins (no fillers) at the required dosage which I then take apart and sprinkle on his food.

    In May he started taking Gabapentin (0.25 mL 2x/day) to help with the neuropathy pain
