Sophie was diagnosed yesterday after a false negative diagnosis a few weeks ago. Starting her on twice daily vetsulin and hills W/d diet. I bought a bag of dry which she likes and one can of wet to try. Any advice is greatly appreciated, as my goal is getting her into remission. Vet isn't having me test her blood or urine at home (yet) but after reading posts here I am tempted to buy the alpha track. Is that the best one to use? My schedule is usually consistent and I don't travel much, but my main concern is maintaining the 12 hour interval between injections. From what I can tell, this is really vital. Sophie turned 10 today and I want to keep her around as long as possible while keeping my sanity and at least part of my paycheck My vet bills for march were $779. I am pretty overwhelmed by that and all the new info to take in. I was trained today by a vet tech how to do the injections. I wish I had a better general understanding of the disease and monitoring it, especially given the amount of money I just forked over. I realize a lot of that research can be done here and I'm glad I found this resource! Sophie is 10, 13.4 lbs (down a pound or so in last year), and her level was 500. I noticed increased water consumption and urine so we treated her for a UTI but that wasn't solving the problem. She has a healthy appetite and hasn't had any changes in personality or visible signs of illness. I'm cautiously optimistic that we caught it early can get this under control or maybe even remission. What are some good treats for diabetic cats? Should I discontinue all regular treats? Vet did not mention this. Any advice is appreciated as i continue to explore the site! Thanks!
