This answer was rated:

My cat has feline diabetes and I've been treating it with Prozinc. Lately (over the past few days) he seems to be klutzy and walking funny.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Did your cat have a fall?
Customer: no at least not that I know of
JA: What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: His name is ***** ***** he is 12
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Mineu?
Customer: I've been feeding him only canned food (wellness core) and he's been very hungry, though last night he threw up. I've been able to put a bit of weight back on him so that is good

HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with this....you need to get your kitty to vet first thing in am and you may want to skip am dose of insulin because I am concerned your kitty may be going into a hypoglycemic crisis as cats can occasionally go in and out of diabetes.....so take your kitty to vet first thing in am. I hope this helps you. Sincerely, DRB

I am happy to answer follow up questions but you must see your vet. Your cats glucose needs to be checked...by your vet and also a fructosamine level. DRB

Hi,

I'm just following up on our conversation about your pet. How is everything going?
