Hello!! I am wondering if anyone can give me some pointers regarding our diabetic kitty. Things don't seem to be getting a whole lot better despite three vet visits. Per our vet, we have our cat on Royal Canin Glycobalance. She seemed to like it at first, but isn't as thrilled now with it. She eats a couple spoonfuls twice a day. Also per our vet, she is allowed to free feed purina cat food (I questioned this, but vet said this was fine). We have her on 3u of Novolin every 12 hours with a two-hour variance. We also have two other cats (her kittens) and they all eat at the same time in different locations. The other two cats also free feed on dry food and eat a mix of 9-lives or friskies with a little bit of her food in it, because we are considering transitioning everyone to the same diet. Our cat is constantly hungry and it breaks our hearts. When she is climbing up our legs begging for food, we always open a can of chicken, tuna in oil, salmon, or gourmet sardines. Her favorite protein is snow crab from Red Lobster, so we are those cat people who will buy it for her. The vet recommended we did that and to make sure she eats when she is hungry. She is still drinking a lot of water and peeing a lot. She also has kind of felt warm to the touch to me and lays on the hard floor to keep cool I think. We have asked numerous times if we are able to test ourselves, and our vet said that there is no option for home testing. Based on what I have seen on this forum so far, that is inaccurate. We have also been told that there are just two options for us as far as insulin-- one that costs $30 per vial (Novolin) and one that costs $400 per vial. Regarding the insulin, our vet said that the expiration dates do not matter and we are still on the first vial of insulin, so now I am questioning everything and am not feeling very confident in our vet's ability to treat her. The last time we were at the vet, although her blood sugar numbers didn't improve, she did gain 1/4 pound. She lost about 21% of her body weight before we realized there was a problem. It seemed to happen quick. I had also spent a couple of weeks out of town and when I got back, she was super skinny. If anyone has any advice or if I need to answer more questions, please let me know. We are 100% dedicated to making this cat's life comfortable, happy, and long.
