Unfortunately many vets really haven't made the connection yet between dry food and the detrimental effects it has on feline health. A big part of that is due to the rather unethical influence from pet food companies like Hill's, Purina, Royal Canin etc on not only the profit margins of most vet clinics, but also the education of the vets themselves. Hopefully your vet is open to learning from this situation and will take diet more seriously next time she's treating a diabetic kitty.

Please do! Crossing my fingers that he continues to improve, maybe even to the point of not needing insulin.
