|My buddy Oz recently has been drinking a lot of water and urinating a lot. He had bloodwork done yesterday, and I got the call this morning letting me know he has diabetes. Poor guy, he already has asthma!
So, Ozzie and Momma go to the vet Monday morning so I can learn to give him his insulin shots. Because this is such a new thing, it's pretty scary.
I am assuming they will try to push prescription food on me, but Momma knows most of it is garbage. My guys have been on Blue Buffalo Wilderness and Grain Free Wellness pouches.
Are there any high quality non-prescrption foods that can be used for diabetic kitties? Also, seeing how I have another kitty Milo here who doesn't have diabetes, can he eat it as well???
Also, is there is anything else I should ask the vet on Monday? I really am hoping we can get this to go into remission.
As a side note, for all of you cat owners who sense something wrong with your cat always trust your gut. In my experiences both with Ozzies Asthma and now the diabetes I knew something wasn't right with him. I of course had people tell me I was overreacting or I take my cat to the vet too much. You are the person who knows your animal the best so always trust yourself.
Thanks all on catster for your continued advice and support. It has helped so much!!!
Ozzie and Vivian
