I am sorry Olson is not feeling well.

Many cats that become diabetic due to a dry food diet can be turned around (unlike people) by switching to wet food.

Please read article written by a feline vet:

In the meantime to cure his diarrhea, go out and get a jar of baby food chicken with no onion or garlic. Add a tablespoon of boiled white rice. Feed only that till stools are normal for 48 hours.

He should also get a probiotic line culturelle or forti flora

Please let me know how he is doing.

Thank you so much. We've switched him to wet food & are administering insulin 2x daily.
