Starting to get worried.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am starting to get worried about barley he's taken to eating wet food quite easily but i am still mixing it in with his hard food it was like he's eaten wet food before but now he can't get enough of the wet and not the dry. I just fed him and put dry food in his dish he looked at it then looked at me like i was crazy then i ended up giving him him wet food and he went completely crazy. I put him on specialty kitty wet food the walmart brand. But now he flinces everytime i give him his insulin i do it in different spot's everytime but he still flinces. I am not sure what to do i am getting him a glucose metre this friday to check out his level's. But how do i deal with his flincing everytime.

is he Diabetic ??? if so talk with your vet ... Many vets recommend a all wet diet for that issue ... he is simply choosing what he knows is better for him and please DO NOT mix wet and dry food togther as a bacteria bloom can occur

IMHO Special kitty is like mcdonalds for cats .. can you afford other wet food

Yes, if he's diabetic wet food is much better for him. And Sharky is right, when wet and dry food get mixed together bacteria can develop.

I think it must be kinda of hard for any cat not to flinch somewhat when getting a needle

Victoria, please check your 'private messages' here, just sent you one! I'm here in Airdrie, I have a diabetic cat too. I responded to one of your posts yesterday but not sure if you saw it.
