Question by KEITH G: Concerning feline diabetes, anyone know of alternative meds beside insulin injections.?
My cat’s having a difficult time with the shots-growling & hissing when he sees me. Something oral would be better. I’m a little leary of herbal remedies unless someone has first hand success with it.
Answer by Brian L
Injections really are the best way to do it, because insulin has to be delivered to the bloodstream, and is broken down by stomach acid (that’s why human insulin-dependent diabetics have to do injections, too).
Talk to your vet about other injection sites (like the scruff of the neck), how effective they are, and perhaps using a smaller needle.
