My little buddy's blood sugar levels are finally approaching a normal range. After some research it's sad to say that most vets push garbage food labelled as "prescription" , even for diabetic cats. Poultry by products and corn meal (!) are the first couple of ingredients in Hills "Prescription" MD canned food, and only available from veterinarians, giving it a real air of quality. Now, the first day on appropriate, no-carb food, and Monty's blood sugar is showing an immediate turn for the better. Our situation isn't an outlier, either. Check out www.catinfo.org
for great info on feeding your fuzzy little buddies. It's written by an extremely knowledgeable and devoted vet.
