So our 10 year old male cat has lived a marvellous life so far. He was recently diagnosed with Diabetes and we've been doing tons of research. We plan to feed a homemade diet...thinking cooked at this point with an eventual move to raw. We used to do raw with our dogs (currently dog-less) so we've not unfamiliar with that routine, but it got us four more years with our old guy. Just cooked is quicker to move him onto. Our vet is NOT supportive of doing this but I have to think what's best for our budget and our cats right? We have a second cat Lizzy, female. long-haired. Perfectly healthy at this point though full of attitude. Keeping HER from getting diabetes would be excellent as messing around with blood and needles would SO not be my idea of fun. Both cats will be transitioned to the new way to feed. Currently we are trying to figure out the whole monitoring from home thing and finding a meter to use. Question: best options in Canada? What monitor to get Question: how to monitor a cat's glucose levels with a human monitor. how do you translate the differences? or what numbers should be aiming for with a human monitor? Thanks for the welcome and the advise.
