Hello my name is Pam. My beautiful calico Pearl, 10 years old, was just diagnosed with diabetes. Her vet gave her the first shot yesterday and taught my husband and I everything we need to know about taking care of her. He is such a great vet and explains everything so it is easy to understand. I gave her shot this morning and she ate her breakfast. But, she didn't eat all of it. After a few hours, she wanted a snack so I gave her some of her leftover breakfast. I hope that was ok. I am going to learn how to test her blood at home so I can monitor her closely. My husband and I work about 9 hours a day so I'm worried about her sugar dropping and no one home to rescue her. Any suggestions?
