I am new to the group and also trying to figure out how this site works. My cat Bella age almost 8 was diagnosed with diabetes 12/23. (Her brother Edward had emergency surgery for bladder and urethra stones the day before) Ahhh! The vet send us home with vetsulin and said to give her 1 unit twice a day. We got very little other info. She had one unit in the vets office and one unit that evening with us. Unfortunately she refused any food and we ended up at the vet emergency. They kept her for 12 very expensive hours and monitored her blood glucose. Her level never dropped below 216. They sent her home off insulin. I saw our regular vet as soon as I could. Her blood glucose was 310. They suggested putting her on a low carb diet. She’s been eating small frequent meals of a tablespoon or so of fancy feast. I can get her to eat every two hours or so. She seemed perkier and then last night was lethargic. I had my husband go out and get a glucose meter. We had absolutely no luck getting a blood sample. We will try again later. So overwhelmed and frustrated. I did find some info about obtaining a blood sample from a cat. A very kind person on this site suggested I join this group. Thanks ahead of time for the support!!
