Between 2013 and 2015 (more recent data is available), diabetic cats got a range of tests, glucogenic products, and prescription diets. The number of clinic visits each year vary greatly and does the type of treatment each cat receives–both have major differences.
About 180,000 DM cats ate food given to them only by a vet. Also, on average, about 240,000 DM cats are treated with diet food alone or in combination with glucogenic regulators. About 20,800 DM cats got an average of 63,000 Glucogenic Replacement Therapy (GRT) products without a recommended diet.
These treatments vary based on the cats’ body weight, risk factors, and insulin resistance. Cats with diabetes mellitus need to maintain insulin therapy. It should be done to ensure a good quality of life. Dosing with Insulin needs to be persistent for such cats.
