Customer Question

I have a 10 year old Balinese cat that has had diabetes for approximately 3 years. He takes Lantus and has been doing wonderful, until a couple weeks ago. His ears have developed bumps that feel crusty and his bottom now resembles a baboon. I have taken him to 2 different vets that administered blood tests and ketone tests. The test results were fine. He is lethargic and wants to be alone.

I am sorry your boy has this trouble.
Were his anal sacs checked?
Are the bumps ONLY on his ears or do you see some on his body like this?
Is he passing normal stools and urine?
Is he eating?
What food?
