Hello, about a week ago, my 12 year old cat was diagnosed with diabetes. I noticed that he didn't walk the same, his hind legs looked a little wobbly, so I got him checked out. On the day he was diagnosed, my vet told me to start him on 1 unit of insulin every 12 hours. Today, it has been a full week, and so this morning I took him to his appointment for his blood glucose curve to be done. Unfortunately, my vet called me to pick up my cat early because his blood sugar was still too high and also kept hissing at my vet while she was trying to check his blood glucose. After I picked him up, my vet told me to raise his insulin dose to 2 units now. I should also mention that my cat has always been on dry food his entire life and freely eats. I regret not doing anything about changing his diet or looking more into it. Now i am trying to switch him to canned wet food that my vet prescribed me (w/d Hills prescription diet) I tried to see if my cat would eat it at first but he didnt want anything to do with it. I read that I should mix a little bit of it with his dry food, and I tried that but he still wouldn't eat even a small piece. I feel like if I changed his diet to wet food, his blood sugar would have a better chance to regulate. This is my first cat, and my parents gave him to me when I was 9. I am 21 now and I'm trying to do everything I can to help my cat, I'm very new to this, and I would appreciate any advice on how to get him to eat wet food. I asked one of the ladies at the desk what they thought of at home testing for blood glucose and one of the nurses said only trained professionals should do that.
