You have some good advice from karne09 above.
My 11 year old girl kitty was just recently diagnosed (January 5) with diabetes. She is on 2 units insulin every 12 hours. Just two days ago I bought a ReliOn Micro glucose meter at Walmart for $12.00. A box of ReliOn Micro test strips (50) only cost $21.94. I don't know if this will help. I haven't learned how to use it yet. It's a very small meter and needs no coding. My Vet didn't mention buying a meter, but I went ahead any way. So far I have taken her in once for a glucose test and will be taking her again the end of the week.
could you try an add out...maybe a human out there in community who also lves animals would share a few???..some are on a plan where they are covered and maybe could slip you a few??...if you could get a few ppl maybe could round up enough for a supply each month...OR check with pharmacies...they need to throw out expireD ones with dates on..but im very sure like any product they are STILL GOOD FOR AWHILE BEYOND DATE
Thanks...he is such a sweet cat! We wouldn't have it any other way! :-)
Wow, this one is tough, and I sure hope someone on this forum will help you on that. Caring for a diabetic cat can prove difficult.
I honestly hope someone has any idea how to help you, Hopeful1981. I wish you good luck, and God bless you for taking on such a responsibility of caring for a sick kitty.
All the best to you, mom and poor kitty.
