Can we replace insulin injections ONLY for 5 days so we can leave our diabetic cat with a friend while we go on vacation?

Dear Carey,

You need to give insulin if it is required. Along with giving insulin I would suggest you try DIA-IONX because it helps to control the symptoms of diabetes and it's therapeutic mineral base helps activate the enzyme systems in the body that help with healing. After giving DIA-IONX for a while some owners have reported that they have been able to reduce the insulin dosage and some have been able to stop giving it because their pet no longer needed it. However, each patient is unique and has its own set of circumstances. One cannot stop giving insulin until the body no longer requires it. In addition I like to give probiotics and Omega 3,6,9 daily. DIA-IONX will help the body better utilize the other supplements. In addition make sure that you offer sufficient water free of chlorine and free of fluoride. In the cat it is important to avoid any dry food at all since it stresses the pancreas.

A regular exercise schedule is also helpful in moving glucose from the blood and into the muscles which will reduce the blood glucose. It is important that you monitor the blood glucose levels so that you can ask your veterinarian about adjusting the insulin dosage when necessary.

Be sure to advise your pet sitter about handling diabetes and what to do if food consumption is not normal. Please let us know how you progress or if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
