Q. I have 2 (brothers) cats, 1 has Diabetes and I just accidentely gave the Insulin shot (.9)) to the wrong cat! OMG! What should I do? HELP please.

Answered By

A. This can be serious. You should feed your cat high calories food every few hours and monitor closely for signs of low blood sugar level which are shaking, drooling, lack of coordination and even seizures. The effect of insuline can be seen for several hours after administration so need to monitor your cat closely for 10-12hrs
