Feeding guide

Feeding Guide

It is important to closely monitor the cat’s blood glucose levels during the first weeks of feeding PURINA PRO PLAN VETERINARY DIETS DM St/Ox Diabetes Management in order to adjust the insulin dosage. The recommended period of use is initially up to 6 months but Feline DM St/Ox Diabetes Management can be fed for life if necessary. Feline DM St/Ox Diabetes Management can also be used for weight loss. Weight loss feeding guidelines are based on the cat’s current weight, and should be adjusted every 2-4 weeks during the weight loss programme after re-weighing. It is recommended that a veterinarian’s opinion be sought before use. Water should always be available.
