Hello, my name is Danielle and I have 4 cats.. Dwhite, Monster, TT and Liberty. I now have one on Vetsulin 1unit twice daily. I am a RN but I am extremely nervous about giving my cat insulin. I am unsure of how much is enough when it comes to eating..as well as HOW to get my guy to eat. He has lost weight (about 25% of his body weight) over the last month and he was never was obese to begin with . We believe it was brought on by a steroid injection. I will welcome any suggestions and appreciate any help. I do not monitor his bs at home. This makes me extremely nervous...I was taught never give insulin without knowing the bs! I would like suggestions on a meter to purchase...I have spent a ton of $ lately on vet bills and was wondering if you can purchase used ones. I want to be hopeful about his outcome, I do much better with people than I do animals. This has been very upsetting for me and I want to do what is best for him.
