Yes my Mr. Max is diabetic has been on insulin 5u x 2 qd. He is about 15 lbs. he is on blue dry indoor food. I would like 2 try the liquid on him. My vet didn't even talk to me about his diet when we found out he had it about a year ago so I had to educate myself. He was on terrible dry food before took some work but he is totally on blue and has been for sometime. Would like to do his bs myself too instead of taking him in ever so often for all day just to poke him 4 times. They don't feed him the food I bring in Nd he is such a mess when he comes home. Can you please give me some good direction to go. Thank you

Dear Linda,

Studies have found that diabetic cats do better if they do not have any dry food at all. Dry food stresses the pancreas more than canned food does. I would also give PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9 as well as DIA-IONX. These are all available from Vetionx. Improving digestion and reducing inflammation is very beneficial for the diabetic patient. Water is important too. Well water should be fine or you could give Reverse Osmosis Water. You want to avoid chlorine.

You cannot stop giving insulin until the body no longer needs it. You will need to monitor the blood glucose or the amount in the urine so that you will know when to call your veterinarian to ask about adjusting the insulin dose. You would not want to give an injection if the blood glucose is already low. Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,

Dr. Char www.vetionx.com.
