If your diabetic cat is experiencing weakness, having difficulty walking, or is walking on its hocks (hind legs) or wrists (front legs) please don't ignore this condition. It is most probably Diabetic Neuropathy. Although it can be brought on by other causes, it is a nerve disorder most likely brought on by continued high glucose levels. This condition occurs in human diabetics and it occurs in diabetic animals. Neuropathy is a treatable and REVERSABLE condition in many diabetic cats.
Methylcobalamin is a form of vitamin B-12 that has been used in diabetic animals with great success. It is stored in spinal fluid. It should not be confused with regular B-12 (Cyanocobalamin). They are not the same. You will not see results unless you use Methylcobalamin. Methylcobalamin is safe and water-soluble. Excess amounts are excreted in the urine.
Please visit http:wwwlaurieulrich.com/jasper/ or do a google search and enter Jaspers story, for more information on Diabetic Neuropathy. The site is dedicated to Jasper, who responded phenomenally to Methylcobalamin treatment. His symptoms disappeared entirely. Many diabetic cats respond well. Make sure the Methylcobalamin, or anything you purchase for your pet does not contain XYILIOL. This ingredient is TOXIC to cats and dogs. If your cat has Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Jasper's website can link you to another good site with a lot of helpful information.
Xobaline (Methylcobalamin) is available from Life Link. I like this company and they come highly recommended. Their Methylcobalamin is available in a convenient 3 milligram tablet, and does not contain XYILIOL. Jasper's website, and forum members at yourdiabeticcat.com, suggest a starting dose of 3 milligrams given once daily for a cat over 10-lbs. If your cat weighs under 10-lbs., consider using one half that dose, or 1.5 milligrams. If once daily dosing does not correct the problem, cats are given two or three(3 milligram)tablets daily. Life Link's toll free number is 1-888-433-5266 inside the United States and 1-800-473-1389 outside the United States.
