Hi, My name is Rebecca and I live in Nevada. My 11 year old cat, Tiger was diagnosed today with Diabetes. The crazy thing is both my Dad and I have also been diagnosed with Diabetes this year. However, we are on oral medication. I want to make sure I do everything I can to give him the best life, but I am also not made of money(I'm a Special Education teacher). My vet is starting him on 1unit 2x/day of Prozinc and he goes in next week for an all day glucose curve test. They said this will need to be repeated every 2-3 weeks for a while, then we go to 6 month visits. They wanted to start him on the w/d diet, but I've had past experience with the thyroid diet(with my late cat, Leopold), it's expensive and it didn't help at all. I plan to continue the Fancy Feast(his current obsession). My vet seems a little hesitant at this. I am hoping we will be able to work together on this. Anyway, just thought I would introduce myself. Though I am glad it's nothing worse, it's still pretty scary since cat's can't talk.
