Does anyone have a cat with diabetes?
The cat is on 3 units of insulin twice a day. He follows me all over the house meowing for food all day long. I am so worried about him.
I did have a cat with diabetes and had to administer insulin twice a day as well. Once we regulated the right amount of insulin (which took a while) he lived perfectly normally and happily for another 5 years. Has your baby been on the insulin for very long? It sounds like maybe his dose needs to be adjusted. I would suggest that you contact your vet and see what they would recommend.
Good luck! And don't worry. Your cat can live just fine with this disease if you are meticulous about keeping up with the insulin.
Regina thank you so much for taking time to answer this question! I feel so much better, as we have only had Frodo on insulin a couple weeks. I take him to the vet every Friday to have his sugar checked and his weight checked also. God bless!
No problem! Everything will be just fine!
I have a cat with diabetes. He has had it for 5 years now. Since he is a grazer, I have hunted all over for dry food that has the lowest calories & carbohydrates. And one that he will eat. I don't know about your cat, but mine is a picky eater which makes it hard for me to feed him low carb foods. I have to give mine 4 units twice a day. It is difficult to find information on what dry foods have low carbs. Ask your veterinarian for a list. Can food is much easier to find with low carbs. I use Fancy Feast. But there are now freeze dried foods made from real meat that are probably the best, next to the real thing.
