Yesterday, August 4th, we were informed that our cat Midnite is diabetic. She is 13 years old and weighs 12lbs, her BG was 347. Insulin is Prozinc and perscribed 1 unit every 12hours. Since then we've been absorbing all the information we can about her condition. Browsing through the threads here has been very helpful and informative for which we are grateful for. Currently my questions are in regards to BG meter and food; Are we ok to keep feeding her Fancy Feast and should we stick with one flavor or is it ok to switch it up? Her favorite is the flaked fish & shrimp feast. The vet told me it wasn't necessary to monitor her glucose but I don't feel comfortable not knowing before I give her an injection. Considering ReliOn Confirm. Also is a lancing device suggested or should I just prick by hand? The back story to how we got here: Last Friday night, July 31st we noticed Midnite didn't finish all of her food as she normally would. Nothing too alarming to raise concerns at the time. Saturday morning filled her food and water bowls as usual, when on about our day and hours later noticed that her bowls were still topped off. Came to find her locked in our son's room so I figured that was why her food had not been touched. Then Sunday when we awoke and found her food bowl mostly full but she had drank most of her water. Thinking perhaps it was something dental and not wanting to crunch on dry food we got her favorite Fancy Feast flavors. When I popped the can she came running and meowing as normal but then only ate 1/4 of a can at most when typically she'd eat all of it and want more. At that point knew something was a miss. Keeping a close eye on her Sunday we noticed her laying in places she normally didn't, wasn't very active at all, and she wanted to jump over the gate to get to her litter box but would sit there like she was trying to figure out how to get over it. Monday morning we take her in to be seen by the vet and they take x-rays and draw blood. On the x-rays everything looks good except that she is constipated so the vet keeps her overnight to remedy that and wait for lab results on blood work. Tuesday morning we get the call and the Doctor informs us she has diabetes. Midnite comes home: She didn't eat or drink at all when at the vets so I gave her some food and she ate very little, less than 1/4 can, even after acting excited about it. Gave her a bath and let her relax for a few hours then tried again. Still wasn't interested that much in it so I warmed her food up a tad and sat with her on the floor petting her then she finally ate almost 3/4 of a can and drank a decent amount of water. My apologies for the lengthy introduction, just hoping we can make it through this seemingly critical week and have a few more years of enjoyment with our beloved fur baby, Midnite.
