I posted on the old board earlier today and thanks to Cindy and Mousie et al, I'm now on the new board! So here is my story and I've added more information about Travis: My 11 year old cat, Travis, was just diagnosed yesterday with Diabetes..After a small freak out over the vet bill, $618, it was comforting to read that costs might not be that frightening going forward. Our vet was unable to change his diet because he is already eating Hill's CD for build up of crystals in his urine. Thanks Cindy, for the link and info about possibly taking Travis off CD. I will be calling my vet tomorrow. His BS is 450 and he is currently getting 2 units of Vetsulin 2 times a day. He goes back to the vet for a reading next week and then in another week, stays the day for a glucose curve. We just lost his litter mate over the summer to Arterial Thromboembolism. This was a huge shock to our family, and the first time my son, 9, had to deal with death of a pet. So of course, I will do anything for Travis!! It's great to be able to come to this board for support!!
