    Thank you for the great information on your site. Our cat Molly is approx. 16 years old and had been scratching open a hot spot on her face for nearly a year. Our Vet thought it may be due to an allergy and recommended a limited ingredient diet. We found Natural Balance Duck and Pea and Venison and Pea at Petco and after approximately 6 weeks she has stopped scratching open the sore on her face. Recently, however, she started to lose weight and drinking a lot of water. When we took her to the Vet she had a blood sugar level of 396. We started giving her insulin shots twice a day and her blood sugar level dropped to 137 in the first week. In researching her disease, I noted that dry food may be contributing to her disease so we have eliminated the dry food. I was pleased to see the Natural Balance listed on your site. Is it possible we can manage her disease through diet alone? Will pet food labels be required to list nutritional information in the future?
