Hello Everyone! Well I have 3 pets. A indoor/outdoor small dog and two inside cats. The cats are 3.5 yrs and 7 months. The 3.5 yr old male cat "Exxon" named after the gas station I found him at got sick, I took him to the vet, and discovered he has diabetes. Exxon was at the vet for a week. I got him back yesterday. The vet says I have to give him 2 shots a day. With a u40 needle and need 4.5 units (I pull back between 4 and 5 on the syringe). I gave Exxon his first shot last night. I feel like I did right but he jumped when I pushed the plunger in and jumped this morning as well. I am very overwhelmed with all of this. Up until now we free fed all 3 animals and have no idea on how to manage this now. I started Exxon on the new diet- The Vet gave me Hill dry food and Hills wet food?? Although I have learned since then people don't recommend Hills so I am not sure why my vet sold it to me? Anyways I caught Exxon last night eating the moist and meaty dog food we sat out for our small dog. Agghhhh... Any help, advice, or encouragement is greatly appreciated because I am freaking out! Thanks.
