    My 7 year old male cat has some symptoms of diabetes I am taking him to the vet but would like to know recommendations for a cat food if he is diabetic. I would obviously prefer one that is not too expensive and can be bought in stores (vs. online). I have heard about a lot of benefits of feeding raw meat diets but I really don’t have the time and energy to prepare a balanced diet for my cat if there are any good foods out there that I can buy.
    Thanks!

    If indeed he has diabetes, the most important dietary advice is to make sure he eats a meat-based diet. This means no dry food and either fresh meats or canned foods with low carbohydrate content, e.g. ZiwiPeak, Wellness, some Wysong, etc. Take a look at the info in my natural pet care library and at Dr. Pierson’s cat nutrition site for a wealth of info:[url]http://www.catinfo.org/felinediabetes.htm[/url]
