I am glad I was pointed to this form! My cat Annie has been diagnosed with diabetes. She's Still fat but I am working on it and shes lost a lot of weight. I was in the process of purchasing Lantus for her but was given some information on first taking her blood sugar and get a base line. I have been able to take 4 readings (through no fault of Annie, I am not a very good blood taker) and they have been 213, 303, 257, and today's was 357 ( I couldn't get the past two days) I would like to get a bit of a better idea on what her blood sugar should be since I have been reading very conflicting things. Also is there anywhere else on the body I can take blood besides the ears. Since her blood sugar is fluctuating so much I am going to say she definitely needs insulin to get it under control and level. Any information would be greatly appreciated! I do have her on some good canned cat food but she still would prefer dried. I don't want her to get fatty liver so I am making sure she does eat. Again she has lost a lot of weight and is more energetic and playful, but has a way to go as of yet. I will say my biggest concern about giving insulin is the crazy hours I work. I however will not give up my girl, I am just terrified of not being home and her having huge issues.
