Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. If you get a request for a phone call, it is from the website and not myself. If he just missed 1 injection, you most likely won't see any changes in his behavior, but if this continues over the next couple days, he will most likely start drinking and urinating a lot. He may even start to lose some weight, but that will take weeks to months. If the diabetes really gets out of control, though, he will probably stop eating, start vomiting and be very lethargic. The problem is that even if you can get the injection into him, you need to make sure that he is eating. If he is not eating, and he receives the injection, he could develop low blood sugar and go into hypoglycemic shock. If he is not eating, or you cannot get the injection into him, it may be best to have him stay at the veterinary hospital for a couple days at least. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
My goal is to make sure that you get all your question answered and all the information you need. If you are satisfied with my answer, PLEASE RATE IT. Rating it is the only way I get credit for helping you. If you feel like it is not helpful to you, or if there is more information you need, please respond back to me before rating. Realize that our conversation is not intended to diagnose or treat a condition. There has to be a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship established with an exam, according to law. You should always follow up with your vet.
