Treating a cat with feline diabetes

Thursday, August 23, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

Feline diabetes is a treatable disease in cats if it’s caught early and if you follow your vets  instructions. One of the main treatments is a low-carbohydrate diet along with insulin therapy . Oral medications are used when insulin can’t be used for some reason but they may have side affects. If your vet suspects feline diabetes, he will administer blood and urine tests along with a physical examination. Never adjust your cats insulin therapy on your own because this can be more complicated when it comes to cats. Always check with your  vet before making any adjustments. Cats with feline diabetes should have regular checkups every three or four months.

Remember, your pets count!
