This diagnosis came out of the blue about six months ago. I got one of those Himalayan Salt lamps and for about three days Mo slept by it continuously. Never had one sign and then the fourth day he was so lethargic he couldn’t even move hardly then threw up this horrible bright yellow liquid. I looked up online and found that these lamps were toxic to cats. I immediately took him to the vet, my vet I loved and had many years moved away so she was referred. He was on deaths door. And to not have one problem whatsoever before I brought the lamp in I had no doubt that was it. Well to my suprise she says no it’s not the lamp he has diabetes and after that she said things like if we can get his numbers down, idk just was shocking , she said you might have to put him down!!??? I don’t even remember what she said. I couldn’t believe it. He was not showing any signs of sickness until I brought this lamp in, idk I just can’t stop thinking about it because I read horror stories and it was textbook to how he was acting. Even the throw up was the color of the lamp. So I went home with prozinc and was started on 1u then went back a few more times for curves and each time went up, first 2 then 4 then all the way up to 7! First of all I work constantly and have no one to help and try to get as close to 12 hrs as I can. All the while he has not been acting or looking good. His back legs are horrible,, sunk in with no muscle. He was 20lbs starting and now about 15. He wasn’t eating and little did I know because no one told me not to give insulin and I did 7 u!!! At night and in the morning!! He made a horrible howling noise and went into a seizure and I rushed him in . He made it by seconds! Took him to an emergency where he spent 2 days. Since then he has not been doing good. It’s up and down constantly and I feel like I should put him down. He sleeps in my arm every night and he has been under the bed now about 80% of the time. She didn’t even tell me to switch his food till the emergency vet did , then I got Purina dm. Wet and dry. He drinks so much water I have to empty the litter box everyday!! It’s really bad, you can here him gushing peeing. It’s extremely hard to afford and wonder if he will ever come back from this. I have friends that tell me I’m being selfish and should put him down. I don’t know what to do. It’s very rare he has a whole good day. But he’s a lover and he tries to sleep with me and thought there’d be hope. This vet kills me and I’ve been back atleast 10 times in 6 months and I was just going to make an appointment to access his quality of life. I’m sobbing so bad I love him but I don’t think I can make him better. Ive been trying for 6 months and spent thousands. I’m sorry the post is so long. I’ve switched to good food, he’s back down to 3 u and he’s still losing weight. Every time I decide maybe I should put him down he has a good day. Not really good but makes it hard. Ughhhhh I need help. I let my yellow lab , the other love of my life go on for longer than I should have and felt guilty about it. Is there any hope? Sorry I’m rambling.
