hello all! I’m hoping to get some advice here. My JoJo was diagnosed diabetic back in July and after very strict regulation of Lantus and a change to low carb wet fancy feast; he has been OTJ since mid-August. Since then I found Dr Elseys clean Protein and switched him over to that due to the low phosphorus levels and quality ingredients. Just a few weeks ago, I took JoJo into the vet for a checkup; things on the diabetes side look great, however he is now having kidney issues; vet is thinking stage 2 based on 1 blood draw (no other tests were run). My vet is really pushing hills K/D and didn’t seem happy when I brought up the fact that most prescription foods are too high in carbs; she wants to severely restrict his protein; but I know there is sooooo much controversy over a protein restricted diet. I’m also being told that his diabetes “should” be fine when putting him on the prescription food. My question is....what is the best food to feed a diabetic cat (to hopefully keep him OTJ) but is also good for a kitty with worsening kidneys? Also, should more than just 1 blood test be ran to determine the severity of the disease? Again, only a blood test has been ran, no urinalysis or anything else. Any advice welcome!
