Hi, my cat Summer was diagnosed with diabetes the last of August. Her numbers have not been extremely high so it gave me a little time to educate myself on Feline Diabetes. I have been testing her bg at home several times a day since i found out. I use a relion prime meter. I am comfortable with testing but as the day gets closer to giving Summer insulin, i am nervous. I am going to be using Lantus. I think i will start her out on o.5 unit 2 x a day. Summer is on raw diet and has been almost her whole life. Since she is on raw i read that a lot of people don't give high carb canned food if they go too low because it upsets the GI tract. So i would i just use honey or syrup? And another couple things i am not sure about is how to actually draw the insulin into the syringe the proper way. And lastly, how to give the shot. I will be giving the shot in the flank or side of belly. When inserting the needle in to Summer, do i push the plunger and release the insulin after i see that the needle is in OR do i insert the needle and pull back on the plunger to see if there is no blood then insert?? I am just not sure. And what are the best videos to show me about giving the shots? Thank you all. I truly appreciate you all and this forum.
