Hello, everyone. I am new here. My cat Herbert was diagnosed this Thursday or Friday. I was feeding him the worst food--super high carb Fancy Feast Gravy ones with Broth Fancy Feast treats. I just bought the Fancy Feast pates, the lower-carb ones. I feel awful and as if I have made him sick. My vet gave me lots of good information. I got insulin for him--Lantus, with a recommended dose of 1 unit two times a day. His glucose level at the vet was 455, I think. This was Thursday I have given him the twice daily Lantus (once Friday, twice Saturday, once today) and believe he still seems very lethargic, though there is some improvement. I worry because he is just sleeping all day, and because I am freaked out, I cannot tell if this is abnormal. He will walk around a little to lie down in a new place. He will eat and drink and uses the litter box, though one of my two cats had an accident this morning and it could be him. I'm not sure if these are danger signs. I ordered a glucose tester from the vet; it should arrive soon. I also bought one at WalMart today, but I made the wrong choice. It requires a larger blood dose. I did not see the Micros there, so I got the Prime. I tried three times to test him but I was not successful and I cannot stand to poke him more tonight. Worst of all, he is not fighting me, and that worries me even more because it means he feels bad. Right now, I am hesitant to continue with the insulin doses if I cannot get a reading from him. Can anyone tell me if my plan to just not insulin him tonight and feed him low carb food for a while until my better monitor comes in from the vet seems like a wise choice? Sorry if this is too vague. I am on. the. edge.
