Hi my name is Sheila, and live in the UK, and my cat Bronte is currently in emergency vet care after going to the vet last week for possible diagnosis of diabetes (after considerable weight loss). She had first blood test Tue and then again (along with Urine) on Thurs evening. We were told that they could not give a diagnosis until final results were in, and expected back on Sat (which didn't materialise!) or Tue. Since then she has gone down hill- resulting in where she is now. The vet has not been very helpful with any information, and everything I have learned is from these sites. (which have been extremely helpful, caring and informative...and also quick with any responses. Last update was that Bronte is now being started on insulin today and they have said she found ketones in both blood and urine. (but too early to give any other levels etc) Whilst reading all the helpful tips, I was wondering if anyone can give any advise on what the best suppliers are in the uk and also what is the most suitable pet glucometer to get (that will be compatible with most strips, as apparently some strips won't fit in some metres).
