    What's on top of his raw food? Now remember Ruby, once a diabetic cat she is still considered a diabetic cat but she is just in remission now. So, continue to still feed her low carb food and continue to test her . Here is a guideline for you.

    Once he/she is through the trial successfully, you enter a new phase. Your cat is still diabetic but has now become diet-controlled. Continue feeding low carb food in the manner successful for your kitty. If you decide to change his/her feeding schedule, let your meter be your guide to the best times to feed. Avoid medications with sugar in them and steroid medications unless they are medically essential. Continue testing blood glucose weekly for the first month and then monthly forever. It's a good idea to weigh him/her monthly. Weight should remain stable. If he/she seems "off" or sick, or is showing signs of diabetes (excessive drinking, eating, urinating, weight loss), test his/her blood glucose right away. Keep the teeth and gums clean and healthy; dental issues can bring a cat out of remission. If you see rising blood glucose numbers, it's time for a visit to the vet!


    Congratulations again and please don't be a stranger to us. :kiss:

    Thanks so much @Bobbie And Bubba! :bighug:i'm so happy.

    Yeah I know, she's still considered as a diabetic but it's under 'control'.
    She will get her raw food (untill the day she dies) She will not ever EVER get MC food or anything else. And ofcourse not any steroids (except when she must and there is no other choice)
    At the Dutch forum they told me to test her this week once every other day. Than next week test her every week once, and than every 2 weeks once and THEN once a month... But it's not a problem to check her once a month?
    I just want to make sure that's she's not getting a fall back to being diabetic, so maybe once a week is a good choice to test her? (all her life?)

    Oh sorry, forgot to post about the white things on top of her raw food.
    Those are dried white fish snacks (0% carbs). I just bought them today and she LOVES them.
    So because it was a party today I decided to give them as an extra treat on top of her raw food:p
