Dear Lee,

In the cat there are factors that help them to respond well to therapy. It is important to feed wet cat food and no dry food at all if possible and all foods including treats should consist of ingredients suitable for a diabetic. I recommend canned DM by Purina or a low carbohydrate OTC food. 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. In addition, I give digestive enzymes, probiotics and fish oil. Dia-IonX helps the body to better utilize the diet and supplements better for a synergistic effect for faster healing. It is also important to avoid giving water that contains chlorine and fluoride.

Dia-IonX helps the body to assimilate the nutrients, support the kidneys, and improve the diabetic symptoms.

Please let us know how you do or if you have any other questions.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
