|Feline Diabetes Is Not A Cat And Mouse Game|
Cats and insulin shots...sounds odd? But, it's true.
If the diabetic condition in your cat is a longstanding one, then insulin shots are necessary. Once you start giving it the low carbohydrate diet, and once the cats recoup their original health, no further insulin shots are required.
There are two types of diabetes. Type I and Type II. Type II is the more common, both in humans and cats.
But the cat has a unique metabolism.
Cats are obligate carnivores and are adapted to consume a diet that is high in protein, moderate in fat, and include a very small amount of carbohydrates (roughly 3 to 5%). Since nature designed them thus, cats do not have many of the important enzymes that are necessary to process these types of foods.
So, it is not sufficient that you love your cat. You have to understand the cat, its food habits! The food you give to your cat, can be it's grave!
