We just found out on Thursday that our 9 year old Luci cat has a blood glucose of 372 - she was drinking a lot of water - very unusual and peeing a lot! So we took her to the vet, where she freaked out! He put her in an aquarium and gave her a bit of sleepy gas and was able to take her blood; she woke very soon thereafter and came right home. So the blood test came back the next day and the vet told us to put her down - nothing could be done...OMG, my heart was broken!!! Our Luci who was well and happy until he said her glucose was too high was now sentenced to death! Needless to say I spent the rest of the day heartbroken and crying...and then..... I came to my senses and thought - why do we have pick a day to euthanize our beloved cat? Is there not treatment for diabetes? Well, the vet said this and said that - doesn't work in cats, it's very difficult, he doesn't have any feline patients who are being treated at home...about 20 dogs, but no cats...so in other words he really doesn't think she has a snowball's chance in hell of making it out alive...we were at the point where we were trying to pick the day (for her to die)...Another day of being totally upset and I decided to call him and have a conversation about giving her insulin myself at home (so I printed a couple of articles from the good ole source of truth - the internet)..and sure enough, he says, sure - I'll show you what to do...but I can tell you she (Luci) isn't going to like it one bit and will probably disappear on you on day 3... Will a diet change help? Can I manage the insulin and daily glucose checks? Is she going to feel better? Get better? Is there someone in my area who can help me the first couple of times?
