I am sorry to hear you are worried about Yellow.

I see he is vomiting, and that he is overweight and a lazy groomer. When you took him to your veterinarian, what did they do; what did they say? How can I be of help?

At past visits, hes sugar levels where hight no i change his food and friday docs says its 334..... he says he needs a 3 day stay at the hospital and insuline but i cannot afford that..... i just wonder if euthanasia it would be a humane solution for him
Expert:  Rebecca replied 9 months ago.

What food is he getting?

Is he eating?

If he is eating, and drinking, one option is for you to start the insulin injections at home, and then bring him back in a few days to see what his blood sugar is. Some diabetic cats will to into remission if treated with insulin, started on the correct diet, and if they lose weight.

If he is not eating, he may need to be getting IV fluids, and hospitalization.

If he were my cat, or my patient, I would not be ready to talk about euthanasia if he is still eating.
