Just found out 3 days ago my 10 yr old Layla has diabetes. She is on dry food (which is diabetic, but I will just keep her on wet after she eats all this). I cannot afford to get rid of it because I have all this regular food to get rid of. Since she does not handle drama at all, the vet said just try to control it by diet. After reading all the posts I am afraid she will die w/o the insulin. She doesn't seem like the same cat. Her fur is coming out like crazy. I really can't afford another vet visit now either. Does anyone know how long it will take for her to feel better? I am worried sick.
