Diabetic Cat Thrives. Hi Dr Carol, Very well, thanks..As I type, Sampson is “flirting” with Maggie again! I still have to be careful re: Maggie’s food – she still seems to be able to eat only the chicken or else she gets a little “loose” – I tried her on a whole vitamin night and day but went back to 1/2 dose…she looks fantastic and I think is gaining a little weight…things seem so much better now, than they did a year or even six months ago! Maggie is still off insulin and her heart murmur, at least at the moment, has not cramped her style. She is agile and alert (though she has always acted a little schizo). What I really notice with the PAAWS vitamins are all three cats’ coats…so much softer, really beautiful for three “senior citizens”!
I wish for the sake of convenience that I could feed Maggie a commercial food, but I think I have tried the best of them (all canned)…It seems, she is fine with your home made recipe and I am able to add a tiny bit of wet food now and again, but then I have to back off the wet as the smelly stools return (though not as before). A real puzzle to me…but she doesn’t look jaundiced or anything, otherwise I would suspect a liver problem…her ALT came down too, so that’s another positive. As much as I’d love to put a label on whatever “condition” Maggie has, I am so pleased that she is holding her own, and is so much improved WITH ALL YOUR WONDERFUL HELP AND ADVICE, as opposed to how she suffered with her diarrhea and vomiting before I contacted you! Thanks for all you have done and for your ongoing concern…and for PAAWS. I recommend them to all my pet-owning friends.
