My grandmothers cat (Goldie) was just diagnosed with diabetes. I'm not sure of all the specifics as my grandmother tends to not remember everything, but the vet said something about daily injections. I'm assuming its some type of insulin mix. Is there much that can be tried before going to injections? They said BS level was around 400. What's the quality of life? Goldie is about 17lbs, only around 8 or so. She's got arthritis in her hips (probably from being so large) and just starting to take Cosequin. I've given my grandmother another diet plan for her (she was free feeding dry food, and giving her a can of tuna a day). We have her at 3/4 cup of food a day, and one can on Meow Mix wet food. As it is, I'll probably be going over once a day to give her a shot, but I'll have to wait and see if she's getting any meds for her today, or waiting until Monday. I may just have them transfer everything to my vet (the vet my grandmother goes to are douches) and see what my awesome vet says.
