My cat is around 7 years old and is very over weight and has been for many years. I try to limit his amount of food but it hasn't helped. Over the past year I have noticed and excessive amount of urination and thirst. I haven't taken him to the vet yet but I wanted to know if putting my cat on this first without the visit would harm my cat. He does not do well with other humans or animals and I'm afraid of what the cost will be.

Dear Kiersten,

I think you should bring a urine sample to your veterinarian. Diabetes, urinary infection, or kidney failure need to be ruled out. You can start DIA-IONX without a veterinary visit. DIA-IONX can be used on cats that are not diabetic but show the symptoms of increased thirst and urination. DIA-IONX was designed to help with the symptoms of diabetes and to stimulate the body to heal. With diabetes 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. There are some OTC foods that are low carbohydrate canned foods that are nonprescription; they 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. Dry cat food stresses out the pancreas. In addition I give probiotics and Omega 3,6,9. 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. Offer filtered water if you have city water.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,
