How often do you feel is necessary to have complete bloodwork performed on our diabetic felines? And with all the testing we are doing at home, how often should the fructosamine test be performed? I think also, we are periodically conducting our own curves as well. I'm wondering why the vet is pushing all this? In regards to food. I am just curious as to how much water is being added to the ff classic pate. I think I may be overdoing it because of the worry about dehydration. While I note that dry food is not recommended, the vet I am currently using continues recommending dry food for diabetic cats. Also, with cats who have urinary tract problems or crystals, wouldn't a dry food add to this problem? I am getting somewhat confused and more than likely have misunderstood something along the way. My vet is stating to just add water to the dry food. But if all the cats (minus Goma) are free feeding, the mixture would end up being a mess I would think. And being wet doesn't change the ingredients.
