Potato is a handsome boy. He is a 13 year old Mink Tonkinese kitty with Diabetes. He lost his family when they moved away and couldn’t take him with them. He had been with his family since he was a kitten and was raised with 3 children.
When he came to us there was some confusing history and we wanted to ensure he was 100%. We did a full check out of this fantastic boy. We soon discovered he had diabetes. We have been getting glucose curves and it looks like it is now in remission! A glucose curve is a series of blood glucose determinations made after a dose of insulin is given. Typically, blood samples are taken every 1 1/2 to 2 hours until the effects of the insulin injection can be determined. Glucose curves is a very effective way to monitor insulin therapy in diabetic cats. Potato has one more test to run to verify this.
We have spent ~$2000 on Potato to get him ready for his forever home. This year we have had higher vet costs with the recent influx of purebred cats and their care. Please help us cover costs for Potato. Thank you for your ongoing support.
Potato is now available for adoption find out more here!
