Last June diagnosed gave me vestalin 1 unit 2 weeks later give 2 u it’s no c/m up needed. So I think vet knows best…. So this year he doesn’t want to eat I called they are like he needs to eat whatever before his shot. Ok so I gave friskie broth or ggravy anything to get him to eat before his shot. Which is now 3 units 2x a day. He’s still off I take him back around June this year . Told her we had been prefilling syringes she’s like oh no you can’t do that. I said well you d said not to shake insulin. Or I read that I had no direction whatsoever, when I asked about shaking she says she didn’t know she would go look it up. So she said very gently make sure it is mixed. Ok . Since June every two weeks I take him back he’s worse with BG so then 3 weeks ago rx pro plan wet and dry. And by the way I’ve seen 2 vets at th e office and asked should I check his blood at home. They both said no too traumatic . And unreliable I trust and be I’ve. Yesterday afternoon no way was he eating. I syringe fed him to give his vestalin 5 units. Got online a resucue group told me about she has a diabetic cat as well so I found my way here. Took him to vet first thing this am he’s not critical vet says but numbers are up from blood done 2 months ago and he lost a pound. He said what him for 24 hours gave me appetite stimulus put on while at the vet this am. This afternoon a friend stopped over from the rescue she checked his blood i651 I it was 581 at vet mind you I know stress at vet and my shy boy seeing a new person. I have a meter coming tomorrow. My one I bought last night for people we couldn’t get enough blood for it to r goiter. So dr. Said now do 6 units of vestalin 2 times a day. Monitor for 24 hour . That was it . I’m like monitor what. How would I know if something is off. He’s lethargic tonight he had a day. My force feeding and crying the whole time I tried. It didn’t go well.why would my vet keep insisting I not k his blood. Now that I saw it done and I did it with her, it wasn’t easy though she had a difficult time getting a sample from his ear and she does it everyday. I’m sure I can do. How long should I force feed this boy. He hated it. I’m just so upset for him he’s getting worse. And no more rx food proplan dm. Done. Any suggestion once I get my monitor how do I know how much to give with the reading. I am switching vets from what everyone has shared with me. I’m worried about him beyond I wish I had not just done everything vet said and research myself better. I don’t know a lot about diabetes . Thank you all for any help. So sorry I wrote a novel.
