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-

Diabetic Dog (Chihuahua)

My 10 y.o. Chihuahua has had diabetes 4 the past 1 1/2 - 2yrs. She's on insulin, had numerous miner problems, like some skin problems. Everything has been monitored & controlled. We've done numerous curves, fructosime, random glucose test. All this & more has been closely documented days, times, numbers from numerous tests, so random glucose test can be exactly compared 2 said tests. Lately she's been losing weight about 1/2lb every 2-3 weeks, her doctor has increased her food gradually, she still has a good glucose level. She is in season & doesn't seem 2 feel well. She seems that maybe her glucose level maybe low? After her feeding & insulin, within a 2 1/2 hr. after feeding. Also on occasion she is licking at her urine? I am going 2 take her 2 vet 1st thing in a.m. I'm curious 2 know what your thoughts are? I'm not sure if I've given u enough info, knowing that so much depends on gathered info? Basically I'm most curious as 2 why she seems 2 having low glucose signs after regular food & insulin? Does her being in season have any bearing on glucose levels? -Becky-
