I have done a ton of reading since Hobbes was diagnosed this Thursday with diabetes. Since the moment I found out I have been reading a ton of information. It can be overwhelming. I have been to the vet and have gotten the insulin and discussed food with her. My first question and I know it has been asked before: Is my vet giving me Hills dry food a terrible idea? Is is really true that the cat should be eating the high protein, low carbs? Is the vet out of touch or am I crazy that dry food is apparently not good for the diabetic cat? I am interested because why does the vet do this if we might have info that says otherwise? I am very intrigued by this, and want to know, can I absolutely feed my cat Fancy Feast Classic and get her better. 2. Should I be checking Hobbess levels at home? I am currently on day two of insulin and the vet says I will need to see her in two weeks. Is that too long a time to be giving the cat the same dose of insulin and basically having no sense, except me perceiving her as "being more active", about where she is at? Am I just wasting time if I am not testing at home? Can I feed my cat Fancy Feast Classic, give her insulin and go to the vet every two/three weeks and get the cat better. (I have left out the love and affection that will also be given to the cat in large supplies, I am just being real technical). There is so much information and choices that you go down a rabbit hole. I want to get my cat better and need some advice. Thanks for listening! Any help is appreciated.
