We have a cat that was diagnosed with diabetes about 6 months ago. The vet prescribed insulin (1/2 m) twice a day. It seemed to help for a while but then he started to lose weight again. The vet had said we could up it slightly if he started having problems. He's unable to gain any weight and he eats ALL the time. We have dry food out all the time. He will also troll around us when we're eating and even get up on the stove or in the sink if he thinks there is something in there to eat. He will even eat the dogs food if she doesn't eat it all. He does this because he is starving to death. He is hideously skinny. If I had to guess how much he weighs, I would guess 6 pounds at the most. I've been giving him wet food every day (while keeping our other cat away since he actually is a little heavy and doesn't need extra calories) and I will also give him people food when it's something that won't mess his stomach up (chicken with no skin for instance). I don't know what to do. Do I need to start giving him chicken every day? The vet just keeps bumping up his insulin (he's up to 4m at a time which seems excessive to me) and he just keeps getting skinnier. If anyone has any suggestions on how I can regulate his diabetes and get him to gain weight I would appreciate it.
