Hello .... I've been on this MB a long time ago with Harper who became diabetic when she was about 4-5 years old. I'm not sure, but I think that was at least 10 years ago. Based on your recommendation, I stopped the kibble everyone (all 8 cats) was eating and switched to Friskies / FF and homemade raw. We tested Harper 4-7 times a day and within a couple months, her numbers were back to normal and she has lived a long life. Harper is 18 years old and still relatively heathy. Here's my dilemma ... JR (male, SH 18 year old male) developed some stomatitis. Vet did some surgery and wanted him on lactoferrin for life, but that did not stick to the dry food that the vet prescribed, which is Royal Canin HP at $100 for 17#. The price is not an issue, altho it is pretty steep. I also had to give JR prednisilone 20u daily ... I eventually dropped it to 5u / day. He's quite difficult for one person to catch and give and injection and won't eat the pred in a treat. He did, but decided ... as cats often do ... that he doesn't want to do that. Anyway, JR developed diabetes which we found about a month ago doing a BG test at the vets. They want him to stay on the dex and the HP and test him again. Here's my take on this .... I think the diabetes is due to the prednisilone/dex and the HP (which is 33% carbs). Steroid induced diabetes is not that uncommon I think. They did not want him to have any Friskies, or FF ... even tho, these are like 5-8% carb. Of course, JR drinks a ton, and pees (inappropriately now) a great amount, too. I know this is pretty brief, but wanted to post and see what you folks think. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
