    Redrock302, I understand what you are going through. I have a 9 year old Min Min (Taz) diagnosed with Diabetes July 31, 2013. levels started at 560. But now his levels bounce from 150-199, 200-292, to 199-236. I can’t get 3 weeks in a row with a level under 200. This is one of the worst battles for a fur baby. Overweight at 27 pounds, but down now to 24 which I am glad to see, but trying to get him to his ideal weight of 18. No Hills diet because he has been grain free since prior to his Diabetes due to skin problems. I try cooking for him chicken, eggs with cheese, or even turkey burgers even buying 95% meat wet foods as a topper. He will eat one day, but not the next. I lay with him coaching him to eat so he can take his insulin. He is on 10 units 2x per day. I can’t find a dry and wet food that he will go crazy over so I won’t have these battles. We fight numerous ear problems. Meds at least once per month. Just when you think he is in the clear he starts with the ears again. I can’t stand to watch him not eat because he needs his insulin as I am afraid his levels will never stabilize and the Vet will only increase his insulin. But what is the use if he won’t eat. Any help out there would be a blessing.
