Your Diabetic Cat – Three Things You Need To Know About Feline Diabetes

A diagnosis of feline diabetes comes as a complete shock for many cat owners.  You probably have many questions.  What exactly is cat diabetes?  What options do you have for feline diabetes treatment?  Can natural remedies for cats help in controlling diabetes in cats?

Feline Diabetes – Understanding This Disease

A kitty with this disease has problems either producing or using insulin, which keeps the levels of glucose in the blood at normal levels.  High blood sugar levels cause liver and kidney problems, gastrointestinal troubles, and an increased risk of infections.  If left untreated, a diabetic cat can go into a coma and die.

If you have an older male cat who is overweight, he’s definitely at risk for becoming a diabetic cat.

Feline Diabetes Treatment

Treatment for feline diabetes often starts with the cat being hospitalized while his blood sugar levels are stabilized.You and your vet will be working together to develop a long-term treatment plan, before Kitty leaves the hospital.  It’s important that you have a good relationship with your vet, so you can work together to help control your pet’s diabetes.

Be aware that caring for a diabetic cat does take a lot of time, especially at first, when you’re learning how to check your kitty’s blood sugar levels, and how to give him insulin injections.Even though there is a learning curve when starting treatment, you can learn to successfully manage diabetes in cats.  After a while, blood sugar tests and insulin shots will become routine, both for you and your feline conmpanion.

Are Natural Remedies For Cats Helpful In Controlling Feline Diabetes?

Many human diabetics are using herbal remedies and dietary supplements to help control their blood sugar levels.  These same remedies are safe and effective for cats, too.  You should look for a remedy that contains astragalus, fenugreek, and goat’s rue, along with chromium. 

Always talk with your vet before you start giving any natural remedy to your feline.Many vets are familiar with these remedies, and they’re usually willing to try them.  Since it may be possible to control diabetes in cats by making dietary changes and using natural remedies, you’ll need to check your kitty’s blood sugar levels often.  The vet may need to adjust your cat’s insulin dosage as time passes.
