Greetings all. I made a post in a sub-forum and was encouraged to post here. Our 12-year-old DSH tabby named Ziggy was recently diagnosed as diabetic. While we were on vacation, we were alerted to what appears to be neuropathy. He seems to walk on a much larger surface of the paw and lower leg than normal and his gate is slowed. He was tested around 400 BG by the vet, but there was no starvation before the test, so we have no idea how much time lapsed between his last eating (free feed) and the test. As such, he was prescribed 1/2 cup of w/d food twice daily along with 4 units of U40 vetsulin following each meal (which he almost never completes). The question I had posted was about what appears to be an illogical combination. W/d food is higher in carbs and in low-quality ingredients (corn is high on the list) than what we normally feed. So, I feel like I'm now feeding him expensive garbage food and combating that by sticking sharps in him twice a day. My first thought was looking at a targeted kibble that is something like 62% protein, 15% fat, 5% fiber, and 10% moisture with no listed carbs (Keto Kibble). I don't understand the relationship completely, but the logic to me is that feeding w/d and injecting insulin is like spraying him with water and toweling him dry when he's dusty. Couldn't I just stop spraying him with water? Today, 8/10/19, he was fed at 7:30 AM and received his insulin just after. At around 6:30 PM I measured his BG at 136. My understanding is that vetsulin has an 8-12 hour duration, so this would have likely been near the wear-off period. My plan is to feed this new food for a day or two on scheduled feedings and take his BG about an hour after the meal in the HOPE that there is some dream scenario where we can regulate by removing carbs rather than stuffing carbs and stuffing a carb-digesting drug. We are often gone for lengths of time and have family members and friends who are cat lovers babysit our cats. While the number one priority is Ziggy, the secondary priority is also to try to avoid having to figure our how we rearrange our lives unless it's absolutely the best thing. When I found this forum and got some initial feedback, I felt less crazy. The ingredients on the w/d food seem like exactly the kinds of things I would to avoid in the past. I also found it strange that Ziggy's BG was taken with out any idea of when his last meal was and the 4 unis of U40 seem risky if he isn't eating the prescribed amount of food. Ziggy has always been a massive cat. He never seemed overweight, just generally large. We noticed he looked a little thinner about 8-10 months ago, and he clocked in around 20.5 lbs. Before that, we hadn't weighed him in at least five years when he weight around 22.5 lbs. He is currently at around 18 lbs, and his hind legs feel thin/atrophied. To give some reference for weight and size, I'm 6'5" and when I'm laying on my back, Ziggy likes to straddle my waist with his hind legs (they wrap around me and touch the bed) and drool on my face with his shoulders just under mine.
