    Hi to everyone!
    My Patch was off the juice for about a good year but on Tuesday I got the blood results that he's back to being diabetic. We moved to a new state and new doctor so we are starting fresh with Prozinc at 1unit twice a day.

    My question is about fancy feast pate. Patch loves the fish cans and he's not wanting to eat other flavors. If I just feed him the fish cans is he still getting a good diet? Or should I try find other ways for him to eat other flavors?

    Hi there! Sorry about the relapse.

    He needs to eat things other than fish. The problem with fish is twofold - the first you've already discovered, once they have it they usually don't want anything else. And a diet consisting of fish isn't exactly "balanced". The second issue is mercury.

    Thank you for the advice! I will definitely add other foods to his diet.
    On my way home from the vet I cried. Deep down I was hoping his diabetes was in the past but it's all good. Patch and I got this!
    I also have to give a big thanks to this forum and everyone that's part of it. I don't know what I would do without this group.
    So thanks for your advice again!

    Was it based off fructosamine? Or sugar in urine
