Hey everyone! Copying some questions from my intro post because I was told I should get some more answers here. My Dave (we think he’s around 14-15...took him in as a stray about 9 years ago) was diagnosed with diabetes on Friday. We have a Home vet who came to visit on Friday, tested his levels and said it was very obviously diabetes. She put him on 3 units of Vetsulin and has suggested changing his diet to a prescription dry food. She said she would like to come for visits once a week for the first month to test his glucose levels. I started to do my research, and realized a lot of people just do home testing, which I think would probably be better for us, but I’m a little nervous for it to be honest. I’ve seen people say 3 units is far too much (his glucose level was 550, vet said it should be around 150). I’ve seen people say changing to low carb wet food could make it so that he doesn’t even need insulin! I’m just a little overwhelmed with everything and don’t really know where to start. Don’t I need my vet in order to get the prescription for needles and the insulin? If that’s the case, should I let her stop by for this first month, or maybe just ask her about Home testing? Ahhhhhh!!!! I am willing to do anything for my Dave, but this is just all so stressful.
