Hey everyone. My sweet boy Jeffy (9 yr old) received the dreadful diabetes diagnosis Monday October 3, 2016. I had noticed him drinking a lot of water and urinating more frequently. So vet confirmed my fears, and sent me home with Vetsulin and Purina DM dry cat food. I'm so overwelmed!!! Jeffy hates his shots, and doesn't understand why his momma is hurting him. He seems down, and so am I. We didn't get much info from the vet, and I'm so glad I found this site. I've learned so much just this week, and realized I definitely did not ask the vet enough questions. I've had several emotional breakdowns this week. Silly I know, but it terrifies me that my big boy is going through this and may have a shortened life. My husband thinks I'm crazy and obsessing. Honestly I need some support and encouragement.
