Can this be given to a cat that vet said "pre-diabetic or on the verge"? All my 4 cats are overweight (according to the charts), vet has only seen them once. Can I give them this to pre-clude developing diabetes? they always seem hungry - I use fancy feast, 3 oz cans - use 2 cans for (1/2 can each cat) breakfast, dinner - then give each 1/8 cup of dry for lunch and before bed. Is this too much - if so what can I feed them to satisfy? figuring kcals is too complicated for 4 cats who eat same time, same room etc. help please! dont want to be giving these guys shots, want them to lose weight (they are 8 yrs old) as soon as safely possible. want them to be healthy, happy and stay with me a long time yet (they are strictly indoor). Thanks!

Dear Kat,

You can use DIA-IONX for your pre-diabetic cat. It is OK if the other cats consume some too but you want to insure the right cat gets enough. I would start by putting 10 drops on canned food on breakfast and supper for the intended cat. 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. I would give all the cats probiotics and Omega 3,6,9. These are available from Vetionx online. I would offer filtered water if your water contains chlorine or fluoride. For diabetic cats it is important they get no dry food at all since it can stress the pancreas and cause the cat to backslide. However cats have their own ideas on what they are willing to eat so you will need to be flexible.

Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
