I'm a long term diabetic and been on insulin for over fifty years. Buddy (the cat) was officially diagnosed yesterday, although I was aware of the signs and had tested his glucose level the day before. Buddy was an outdoor feral whom I fed for five or six years before we moved almost three years ago. When my wife TOLD me that we were moving, I informed her that Buddy and Alby (his outdoor partner) were coming with us. We currently have five cats and a dog. So right now I'm just trying to get Buddy stabilized and finding that it's a lot easier to test my own blood sugar than Buddy's. The vet got him started on NPH (mostly because I think that is what she's comfortable with), but I am hoping that ProZinc will be in our future.
