Hi everyone! My cat has been diagnosed with diabetes for about a month now! I am getting super conflicting advice from my vet than what seems to be common knowledge here. Here's some: 1. Do NOT test for blood sugar for the next week, as it will stress out my cat. However, my cat is actually very calm during the pricks. Isn't it best to do preshot tests just to be safe? I don't know why she was very adamant about this. She has already been okay with me doing an occasional blood glucose curve. I told her that I am concerned about hypo and that our cats are alone in the middle of the day. 2. Is Royal Canin really a lot better than Fancy Feasts Classic? She admittedly did say she was not familiar with the food I was using. I just e-mailed her a link to Dr. Lisa's chart and hopefully she will trust me more on the food front. I know she isn't just trying to make money, but at the same time it's frustrating... We are lucky that wee can afford the Royal Canin food, but really don't see a big benefit difference. 3. Is a urinalysis really necessary every 2-3 months? She mentioned that she would like this done before any refills on the insulin. I understand running it if my cat is showing signs, but bringing him into the vet for that so frequently seems a bit much. Maybe I can just get urine test strips? 4. For those who are wondering, the odd dose in the middle is because I realized I had converted U-100 amounts wrong. I ended up keeping it at that amount because it seemed fine, but upon recommendation went back down. She also seemed very much AGAINST using U-100, even though I told her I am now using a chart every single time I deliver insulin. I think I'm just going to keep silent about this, as I get free unused leftover needles from my cousin. At the same time, I don't want to have a relationship with my cat's health professional that is steeped with lies. :/ I know my vet is really just concerned for the health of my cat, but I am just so surprised on a lot of it. I want to respect her as a professional, but at the same time I consider my knowledge and FDMB's knowledge to be pretty good too. Need some advice here. u.u even if it's not what I want to hear.
