Question by www.bajunajewelry.etsy.com: Have you ever heard of a cat recovering from feline diabetes?
She is eight and very fat. She ran out of water when we were out and went into ketosisacidois. Her breath smells alot like acetone so we took her to the emergency room even though she was drinking on her own. The vet says now she has diabetes. Can they recover if we get the weight down?
Answer by Mary c
I know of one cat who was put on a diet and lost a lot of weight, and was no longer diabetic. So, yes, it is possible. And it is the most responsible, loving thing you could do for your cat, but managing diabetes and cutting back calories and increasing activity levels is a tricky proposition, and you will have to come up with a plan for your cat, with the vet’s input.
