A Diabetes Drug That Should Come with a Warning

#192: Dr. Elizabeth Hodgkins talks about a new drug that has just come out for cats with diabetes. It concerns her for many reasons: it is only partially effective, it has side effects serious enough to warrant an FDA “black box warning” (like those cigarette packs), plus it is very expensive. She and Tracie urge everyone to avoid creating diabetes in their cats by avoiding “kitty crack” — any dry food — and to feed their obligate carnivore only wet food.
