Health Questions & Answers



We suspect our cat has diabetes and have had her on Dia-Ionx for 2 months now. It has helped with some of her symptoms--she is no longer vomiting after meals like she was and her appetite is excellent--more than excellent, voracious. She seems overall in pretty good spirits, but she is still drinking tons of water and urinating tons. And she will not gain any weight despite eating four good meals of canned food and all the dry food she wants a day. Is there some other product that might be more helpful for her, or should we continue with the Dia-ionx? Any other suggestions? We don't have much money to go for lengthy diagnosis and treatment to a vet. -Frank-

Dear Frank,

It is best to get some blood drawn and get a diagnosis so you will know how to better help her. Mean while give digestive enzymes with each meal, a probiotic, and a fish oil supplement daily. Dia-IonX will help the body better utilize the other supplements for a faster response. In addition make sure that you offer sufficient water free of chlorine and fluoride.

Diabetic cats should not be fed any dry food at all. It stresses the pancreas. Low carbohydrate canned foods that are nonprescription include Friskies Classic Pate Salmon, Fancy Feast - Savory Salmon Feast, Turkey and Giblets Feast, and White Meat Chicken Florentine. These are 2% or lower in carbohydrates.

Please let us know what else you find out or if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
