After a week of consistent yellow preshots, Tucker decided to dip into the greens yesterday. We never got to the point of giving him extra carbs, but tracked him all day. Interestingly, he started climbing into the blues in the afternoon and his preshot was hot pink! This morning he is back safely in the yellow zone. He has a vet appointment at noon to have his teeth and mast cells looked at it, just because he was having such unstable numbers for a couple of weeks. Would love to have eyes on his spreadsheet. Another question has come up, indirectly related to diabetes but thought some of you might have experience with this. Our ragdoll Daisy had a bad episode of struvite crystals about a year ago. The vet put her on Science Diet c/d formulae to dissolve them to avoid her needing surgery. She was in quite a bit of discomfort and it only worked about 75% of the way in dissolving them, so he popped her onto c/d STRESS and then they dissolved very quickly. (Never would have guessed she was a stessed cat--she's very chill!) He wants her on the dry food formulae of c/d for life. (She vomits the wet and at $7.50 a day, my husband wasn't happy to have her on the wet c/d anyway.) The vet says that a high quality md dry food is not going to be the cause of her developing diabetes when we mentioned it is 43% carbs. Apparently, this was debated at an Australian vet conference last year where some vets putting a struvite prone cat onto a fully wet diet (with extra water added to the food) and only using a c/d type of food when/if the cat does have an episode of crystals that need to be dissolved vs vets who say it is condition that is best managed with exclusive use of a c/d type of md diet, because the cat will always be susceptible to developing more crystals in their urine. He said that of the large group of vets there not a single one has had c/d lead to diabetes in a patient, including himself. (Daisy has had a recent fully renal and liver panel run and everything came out perfect.) We are just uncertain as to what we should be feeding her as we do not want to risk another cat developing diabetes if we can help it. Your thoughts?
