Diabetic cats will almost certainly need twice daily injections of insulin. Although the idea of injecting your cat with insulin can be very scary, with time and practice (as with most things) it will get easier.
The needles and syringes used for insulin are extremely small and injections are very well tolerated. The injection is given under the skin at the back of the neck. We or your veterinarian will help to teach you how to do this. It can also help if we clip some of your cat's fur on the back of the neck so it is easier to see what you are doing.
Many cats can easily be distracted by the use of food treats (e.g. Dine Creamy Treats or some of their cat biscuits or other special treats). With practice, an insulin injection can be administered easily to most cats by a single person.
