Feline Diabetes

was Mr. Bears appointment at the veterinarian, he has had diabetes for 4 years
now. We are very lucky to have a doctor such as our Dr. Kroll .

Mr. B, 15 years old,  has been on the insulin drug Lantus for about 2
years now, Mama gives him 2 3unit shots of insulin every day 12 hours apart, and
this medication works so very well for him. Today his blood sugar was at about
57, actually a little low so we are cutting him back to 2units, which is a good
thing. We will go back in 2 weeks for another glucose test .   He is
such a good boy. He weighed in at 15 1/2 pounds , so his weight is staying about
the same and that's a good thing too !   All my cats are on the same
food , Hills Prescription Diet m/d,  very high in protein and low in carbs,
also pretty expensive, about $ 32.00 a case, but worth it for my kids

Tonight's painting is all about LOVE !

Nothing to much more snuggly than a good cat.

Meows and Purrs,
