Hi there! I am mom to Buddy the cat (approx 8-9 years old) who was diagnosed just last week with diabetes. He had his 1 week check up today where the vet did a blood glucose curve. His numbers were still too high, so I have to increase his insulin to 2 units 2X a day. His next appt will be in 14 days. I will be ordering a glucometer and the vet will show me how to use it at his next appt. I already bought some Karo corn syrup for my emergency kit! Buddy is a sweet and gentle boy. He doesn't seem to even notice the shots most of the time! I stopped feeding him dry food (except one or two treats). He's having Friskies pate. He is still losing weight, so the vet said to increase the amount of wet food to 2-3 cans a day! (He is currently having 1/5 a can 2X a day and 1/5 a small Fancy Feast can 1X a day.) I look forward to joining this community and educating myself with the resources here so I can help my Buddy live a happy and healthy life!
