|thanks for all the info, had a good read of the catdiabetes website and have a plan of action. Changing to low carb wetfood(already had some at home, just giving her more of that and no more science plan dry food), buying a blood glucose meter and just ordered the pee strips to test for ketones on a fast delivery, should be here in two days. I will test her with the new change of diet for no more than two weeks. Then if it's reading high blood glucose still I will take her to a different vets straight away...and if i get the high readings of ketones I have to take her to a vet straight away without waiting the 2 weeks.
She is already much better the last week since we've been super strict with no table scraps, and it's cooled down alot outside, she may have just been drinking because of the weather... I've also ordered her a "mynwood cat walking jacket" and am going to try to take her on walks, she has access to the garden, but she gets bullied so she only goes out there once in a blue moon when i go out there with her, and then she only lies down for a nap haha... shes very lazy..
I think this is mostly my fault for letting her eat really bad table scraps , like licking ice cream, buttery potatoes, letting her eat small bits of our KFC...but she really has picked up the last week, she's even stopped asking for food when we eat, she understands she is not getting it now.
