Hi, my name is Natalie and I have a 14 year old black cat named Flea. Over a year ago he was diagnosed with diabetes. Here's our story: Overall Health Flea has always been very lean. He weighs 10 lb. He is an indoor cat, but allowed on the patio with a leash (he's totally cool about it too). Urination and bowel movements are good, occasionally he has an accident. No issues with hydration. Medication Flea started on 2.0 Vetsulin 1x a day when he was diagnosed in June 2019. I work in tv production (12-16 hour work days) so the vet said we could try giving him insulin once a day. In January I joined FDMB. Flea was at 3.0 units 1x day. I learned (through this forum) that Flea should be receiving insulin 2x daily and contacted our vet to discuss switching to 2x a day. We started with 3.0, but in July 2020 increased to 3.5 units. Since Flea requires 2x daily insulin, he is currently living with my mom. Eating Habits Flea is fed 1/2 can of wet food twice a day, with his insulin shot. We give him 1 can of Halo wet food (low carb, high protein) per day. He sometimes get some egg whites or chicken around noon. Some days we give him about 1/4 cup of Orijen dry food as a "treat" in his cat treat ball or we toss one piece at a time across the room so he gets a work out. This was approved by his vet. Since the diabetes Flea is constantly hungry. If you leave any food out, he will grab it. He has been checked for thyroid issues and his levels are normal. Grooming Flea lets us groom him daily. His dander has gotten worse with diabetes (air quality at home is fine, I know this can sometimes be the cause). We stopped giving him fish oil because it caused diarrhea. Our vet informed us if we wanted to give him fish oil again it would have to be every day or it could negatively effect his insulin levels. We use cat shampoo or bathe him with baby shampoo when needed. If you have any remedies for controlling dander, please share. Thanks for reading. Sending love and good health to all the other diabetic cats in this forum.
