New member here, and also new to having a cat with diabetes. It all started Jan 8th with a sick visit to the vet. My cat had mucus coming out of his nose and sneezing. He looked dehydrated, down, and was eating and drinking less. I was told he had a cat cold, was given antibiotics and sent on my way. Monday vet called and said bloodwork was good but his glucose was 460 so he was probably diabetic. Gave me a follow up appointment. Well Tuesday night my cat would take 3 steps and lay down and he looked even more dehydrated so I took him to ER. He was limp, eyes closed, not breathing well. They admitted him and said he was in Diabetic Ketoacidosis. Had no idea what that even meant. He spent 5 days in ER, was told second day he just wasn’t going to make it his kidney levels went from 4 to 6.9 so I made the decision to put him down. That night his blood work improved slightly so I gave him another another day, which he kept improving from there. 5,000 dollars later and a lot of emotional stress he was discharged home where I’m injecting fluids, giving meds and insulin. His numbers have gone really high and then yesterday below 50, I’m panicking. I called my regular vet he said give him a meal. Helped but then back down so I gave him more food. He is on a lifestyle libre for now and that should last about another week. I want to do what is best for him and any info or guidance I can get is appreciated. What food is good? What is a good meter for home testing? Tips on what to do or not to do when levels are too high or too low?
