I'm sorry to hear this, but at least she is responding to treatment. I hope she continues to improve. Hugs.

Slumberkitty, my mom's cat had diabetes. It took some trial and error to find the right dose of insulin, but he did fine once they did.

How about mixing some dry food and canned to help her make the transition? Start with mostly dry and a little canned. Each feeding add a little more canned and a little less dry.

I had to go back to the vet and explain that she's not eating the wet food even when I was mixing it in. So they sold me a bag of diabetic dry food but told me to keep mixing in the wet food but this way she gets enough calories. Her insulin levels aren't under control yet, basing that information on the urine strips. They keep coming out green and it's supposed to be yellow. I'm not sure why it doesn't seem to be working. Probably will have to take her back to the vet. And me...well I'm sick with a cold so it's been a long week. HUGS all, Kit

Oh, bless your hearts! I hope you get to feeling better quick! How many times a day are you feeding her?

Feeding her twice a day, 12 hours apart. Then she gets the insulin 30 minutes after she eats. But last night she barely ate so I didn't give her the insulin. I didn't want to bottom her out. It's tricky.
