Moving over my discussion and questions from my introductory thread. I had just been told to ask the vets to prescribe anything except vetsulin. I am curious as to opinions as that seems to be a very affordable option where I’m looking to buy medications. Also have a question. My cat was not on insulin when admitted to the shelter, he was diagnosed, started on 1 unit prozinc after each meal for two days then 2 units after each meal. The script had an issue and he has now been off insulin since I received him the 21st. We can’t see a vet til Wednesday when our appt is happening. What should I be watching for as far as emergency situations? I’m having a bit of a hard time because I don’t know the cat prior to the diabetes and he is elderly (10) so I am not sure how much is personality or settling in or how much is not feeling well. I’m getting a monitor tomorrow first thing! Background He was surrendered to the shelter 11/12, thought to be diabetic, ran tests, diagnosed diabetic. Insulin started, then up dose, then 11/21 no dose and none since then 10years old, stresses include being separated from mate, surrendered to shelter, testing, etc.
