    We have two cats, Reagan and Madison. Reagan was just diagnosed with diabetes. Madison has had pancreatitis before but with treatment she is better now. Just switched them to all can food, but wondering how much to feed? Going to feed twice a day. Read some articles that say 4 to 6oz a day but thecan of Fancy Feast says 1 can per 2 1/2lb. That would be like 15oz of food for Reegan and 12oz for Madison a day and I think that’s way too much!!! Any advice is appreciated.

    My vet recommended 20 calories per pound to maintain weight

    So probably 2 can of Fancy Feast for Madison, and 2.5 for Reegan.

    Ok been giving them each one can in morning [ 5-6am] and one can in the evening [6-7pm] so far so good. But Madison only ate 1/2 hers tonight. Reegan is on ProZinc 2 units am and 1 in pm was 303 on Alfha2 yesterday in evening but just switched to all can yesterday. So just have to keep an eye on him. Thanks!
