Hi, my kitty was recently diagnosed with diabetes (most likely induced by long-term topical prednisolone acetate to alleviate allergy-induced feline eosinophilic keratosis). Unfortunately we are in China, where the treatment options are more limited and the vets are very helpful but seem to practice a bit differently than the US information I can read online. For example it seems Lantus is not available to our vet. Our vet prescribed Novolin 70/30 that the vet gave us in a penfill cartridge. Kitty's insulin dose is pretty low: 2 units (0.05mL) diluted to 12 units (0.6mL) with saline, then injected 4 units (0.2mL) at a time 3x/day, which seems very different from the dosages I read about online. The vet also instructed us to keep the penfill cartridge in the fridge between uses, yet online I read that when the penfill cartridge has been "opened" it should be kept at room temprature, yet below 86 degrees F. Given that we live in a tropical climate where our apartment is regularly above 86F, I'm not sure what the best course of action is. I guess my question is: is any of this crazy? Should I just trust my vet or should I be seeking other options? Also, has anyone else had a cat possibly develop diabetes due to ophthalmic drop usage? We have taken kitty off of the drops for now, and are really hoping that the diabetes might subside once the pancreas has a chance to rest...how realistic is that?
