Feline Diabetes

Are there any additional treatments that can be utilized in place of insulin shots - my cat is 15 yrs. old and was just diagnosed. I am unable to administer the recommended shots. I have switched her diet to Fancy Feast Classic canned food. She is no longer drinking excessive amounts of water and her urination has also decreased, not like before but much better. Is there some other types of treatments/medicines that could be utilized in place of the insulin? -Stephanie-

Diet for a Diabetic Cat?

My 8-yr-old barn cat, Ben was just diagnosed with diabetes...he was close to death when I found him last week & then got him to the vet...brought him home Mon. after a 5-day vet hospital stay and now he's on 3 units of insulin 2x/day....I just ordered the Dia-ionX...also wondering about his diet...currently I'm force feeding a canned food from the vet....Ben's diet before this was holistic dry cat food....Taste of the Wild...32% protein, 16% fat...but now that he's diabetic should I put him on a canned food? What brand would you advise? Should I prepare a raw diet for him? Thanks for any advice you have. I'm just so thankful to have found your website...this is the most hopeful I felt since he got sick!!!! -Linda-

Very Old Cat Drinking Lots of Water

Callie is 18 yr old inside cat. She is fragile, thin, matted hair. Eats good but does drink a lot of water. I can't afford a bunch of test as I'm old & fragile, too. Can I give her the Dia-lonx without vet test first? -Kathey-

What do I feed a diabetic cat?

I just adopted a 4 year old Persian cat from the animal shelter. I took him to the vet and had blood-work and urinalysis done and found out he is borderline diabetic. I give him prescription food (which he does not like but will eat a little). However, the canned food he will not eat. What ingredients should I look out for that is NOT suitable for cats with diabetes? -Gail-

Cat with Ear Mites

I have been treating my cats for ear mites for a while now and it is very frustrating!! They tell you to use oil to kill the mites and do this everyday for 6days then rest 3 then repeat, but my cats walk around shaking their heads and you can HEAR the extra oil in their ears that hasn't leaked out!! I feel soooo bad for them that I stop, is this normal and should I continue no matter how distressed they seem?? I really wish there was a homeopathic medicine that actually worked to kill the mites!!! Also, I am using Yellow Dock Root Extract every 3 days, how exactly does this help to kill the mites! -May-

Cat is diabetic and no insulin available

My 14 yr old Diabetic male tabby cat is becoming listless, not eating, not responding to voices or loud noises after our weekend away from home. We left out extra food and water and tv on low for stimulus and voices so he and our other 9 yr old female calico tabby would not be bored. We have done this every couple of weeks and no ill effects until this last time. I only left out Indoor formula though, and not wet cat food (higher protein, low carb). His insulin has been on back order more than 2 months, and he had been doing quite well on high protein, low carb diet. This week, his bones are showing on his back, he isn't eating, no large voidings, but has had a couple 'wetting' accidents which is unusual... its like he is too weak to walk... sugar high or sugar low? Should I try to get him to eat more? I did get him to eat 5-6 tartar snacks, and 2 tsp of wet catfood yesterday. He did make it to the water bowl and drank. Please help! Could he have gotten any poisoning from the grass at our apartment complex?  We did give him a handful, as he was trying to cough up a hairball without success... he normally passes them rectally. -JoAnn-

Cat's Paws are Infected

My cat is two years old and gets an issue on the pads of his paws were they become infected and painful in between the pads. Vets can't figure it out and it happens about every 3 months. He is in a lot of pain. In your opinion, will Derma-IonX help? He normally gets steroid shots and antibiotics, but the vet says he cannot continue that as normal treatment. I am willing to try ANYTHING for my little guy! -Kim-

Can I use Derma-IonX on my Cat's Eye?

My cat has what I thought was dermatitis..the vet then thought scabies. He gave her shot for it..I was putting your Derma-IonX on her eye that was sore and swollen. She was doing ok..this first day of spraying the wound and of the shot he gave her. Then I decided to add a 1/2 teaspoon to her food and beneath her eye now is blood red and raw all of a sudden. I am alarmed. Is this the medicine doing something. for now I will discontinue using. -Maryann-

Cat food not store bought

Does anyone have any cat food that one can make from scratch with things we have on hand at home? I am running out of money and can buy tuna, but don't want to feed my 3 cats just that - they come to expect it and I think they should eat something that won't interfere with their digestion. Any one have any suggestions for me?

Arthro-IonX and strokes?

Good Morning! My cat has been on Arthro-IonX for 5 weeks for his hip. He had a minor stroke last week, and thank GOD he has recovered. Is there anything in the Arthro that could have played a part in the stroke? I have not started him back on it yet, and would like your advice. Yes, he has been to the vet. Thank you. Annette
