So you’ve got a diabetic cat…
Effective at-home care of a diabetic cat involves regular checks of blood sugar levels and blood sugar regulation by insulin therapy, dietary management, or both. At least twice daily checks of blood sugar levels is recommended to appropriately monitor the progression of therapy, allowing for adjustments of insulin doses, and track for potential remission. Several resources are available to help with at-home care. These include picture and video demonstrations of glucose checks and insulin administration, blood glucose tracking, and blood glucose reporting. Diabetes is a treatable, manageable condition.
