    Hello I'm new, I'd love some help. My cat Carter was diagnosed with diabetes this week. My vet is saying home testing (blood glucose) isn't necessary. I would love to hear from some of you what your thoughts are. I am also looking for affordable ways to get Lantus and syringes. I am living alone with limited income, however I am committed to helping my sweet angel the best I can. Thanks for being here. Warmly, Tamala

    Hello and welcome to you and Carter. The diagnosis of diabetes for our furry friends is indeed scary and overwhelming and can seem pricey but we have all sorts of tips and tricks up our sleeves to keep the costs quite manageable and keep our kitties safe and in better health.

    As @burtgummer said, they had some of the same questions you do, so definitely check out this thread.

    This is just a welcome mat, so I would suggest you post over in the Health forum HERE with any questions/concerns etc. to get more eyes on it as we generally avoid giving specific information in this forum as there isn't much traffic and all info here is peer reviewed.:)

    Testing is so so important!!!! So glad you are pursuing it despite what your vet said. I have a video in my signature showing how I test my cat CC at home.

    Welcome Carter and welcome Tamla. You've come to the right place. Trust me, the people here are amazing.

    You could check online pharmacies, they might have some pricey shipping but the lower prices balance it out. In my case I had a hard time getting to the vet to buy insulin and none of the local pharmacies carried the one i needed.
