Boarding your diabetic cat requires experienced caretakers. We understand the importance of a diabetic cat’s appetite, food intake, and insulin dosing. Although we try to make our resort as stress-free as possible, when cats are removed from their normal routine it can affect their appetite, and they may not eat as much as they do at home, or vomiting/diarrhea can occur. Some cats may not eat at all for the first 24-48 hours. We will do everything possible to provide the safest and best care for your diabetic cat during their stay with us.
You must sign a Diabetic Cat Boarding Agreement at time of drop off. This explains in detail our procedures for caring for your cat and asks specific questions on how you would like us to proceed if your cat is not eating properly or becomes ill during their stay.
WHAT TO BRING:
-Insulin with correct dosing information on the label
-Own food, treats (we highly recommend not changing their diet. (However, we can offer other options to stimulate your cat's appetite should they not eat normally)
-Emergency contact information should you not be reachable
-Glucometer (if you want us to check blood glucose regularly without an extra charge) We do have a glucometer on site to use for a small fee.
We have an extensive veterinary background and know how to recognize when a diabetic cat needs changes to their insulin dosing or medical intervention.
