I first noticed something wasnt right with my cat Mittens about a week ago when she wasn't finishing her food, which she rarely leaves any behind. All she was doing was mostly licking the gravy and now she has lost a lot of weight. I brought her into the vet on monday but had limited money and it cost $50 to get her in to see a vet on and we only had a $100 left and the vet decided what tests were most important, she did a blood test and it came back with high glucose of 508mg/dl(I hope that number makes since, its whats on the paper work). She then suggested we bring her Fox Valley Animal Referral Center in Appleton, Wi which is a few hours away but not the problem, they said it could cost in the thousands to stabilize her for a few days to a week and thats a problem because i dont have that kind of money, if i did i would spend it in a heartbeat. The other option they gave me was euthanasia, im almost going nuts since hearing it. Im 32 and had her for more than half my life so i wanna do anything i can. Im hoping someone can give me some advice, ive been all tears since getting the news and cant imagine not having her in the house. I had an appointment set for the euthanasia this morning(12/21/16) but i dont think i can give up on her that easy so im hoping someone can help me and tell me what i should do. I got test results that show she has high glucose levels, what do i need to do to get a prescription for insulin? Me and the wife are more than willing to do our research on here and learn whatever we need to. I know theres alot to the hometesting but i hope someone can help me learn. Sorry if i posted in the wrong section, and thanks in advance for any help.
