I just posted an introduction here: http://www.felinediabetes.com/FDMB/...ght-insulin-not-an-option-financially.211986/ I don't know what information is most relevant and which isn't so I don't want to repeat the whole story here but our 12 year old Persian cat is very very underweight, diagnosed 6 weeks ago and we can't afford insulin. Whenever I google how to feed diabetic cats it usually is about how to feed them with insulin or how to help them to lose weight, and neither of those are the case here so I don't know what to do. We feed them Fancy Feast pates wet food, twice a day, 12 hours apart cause the vet said to start feeding him only twice a day. (update: been feeding him as much as he wants as often as he wants for the last two days. He doesn't really ask much more than his brother does but he has always eaten a bit more than his brother does so I'm hoping it's just that) And we give them stuff like a little tuna or plain chicken or sardines after they've eaten their regular food if they're still a little hungry and we're having that stuff anyway. Is there anything we can get like as a weight gain supplement? And what are the thoughts on feeding only twice a day vs. multiple times a day for an underweight cat without insulin? I was giving him a teaspoon of pumpkin after his meas for a few days and I had read that might help with insulin sensitivity but I was nervous about it having carbs in it at all and so stopped that but now I'm thinking of trying it again. Also do you know of any other ways besides exercise to help increase insulin sensitivity? Thanks in advance for any advice.
