Diabetes in cats - treatment costs?

I hve just been informed that our 10 is year old ginger tom has diabetes and will at least need daily insulin injections.

The vet has also said that he will need regular monitoring of blue sugar levels by the vet, so he has to go into the vets for teh day to have his blood sugar monitored.

Not sure if he will need also special food.

So I now have to try and work out how to budget for all this so i am trying to work out what the likely cots will be.

Does anyone have a diabetic cat? what are the monthly cots? Insulin / Vets fees for monitoring blood sugar levels / specila food - is it needed / cots?

Any info gratefully received

thanks

Do you have your cat insured. One of our cats had Kidney Failure which meant daily injections and weekly visits to the vets, it cost about £40 a week plus a monthly blood test of about £11. Our insurance paid for all the treatment minus the first £75 pounds.

Ask your vet about the fees, they will give you an idea of how much it might be.

while looking up the cost a couple of sites said dried food was the only caused of diabetes in cats


maybe its high in carbs - so much grain/maise in it and carbs and diabetes don't mix
