Hello, Chowder and I are new here. He is a 10 yr old Siamese just diagnosed today.....yikes this is incredibly overwhelming. I have been reading every bit of information I can get my hands on but don't feel like I'm retaining any of it. I'm sure I will learn in time. Unfortunately I'm pretty low income and had to decline treatment today...so any tips on money saving would be so amazing and incredibly helpful! I also wanted to take time to do some research because the vet I saw was not very informative.....so I'm not sure how I feel about that. He just kind of spit out results of bloodwork at me like he expected me to know what he was talking about so I was very overwhelmed and confused. I was feeding him a mix of dry and can food both Blue Buffalo brand, but switched him to canned only this week because he wasn't wanting to eat the dry food. There is so much I didn't know about dry food and man wish I would have know from the jump 10 years ago. Anyways, I found the link to the food chart and also bought the Tiki brand....but I'm concerned it will get too expensive so I see many people feed their cats Fancy Feast Classics so I may see how he likes that. Since switching this week to canned only I have already noticed a difference in his drinking and urination habits....less frequent which seems to be a good thing? He gave me a prescription for Glargine Lantus...dosage 2 units (sq) twice a day. He said it's pretty easy to watch YouTube videos on how to administer the shots and do at home testing. I'm so scared to do insulin shots because I'm afraid I'm going to kill him. I don't know...part of me is considering trying out a diet change for another week or so to see how it helps but I have a feeling it's not going to lower it by much. Any advice is welcome!!
