She did not show any improvement until her trilostane dose reached 35mg/BID at which time I am told the ACTH level came into high normal range and the decision was made to increase the dosage to 40mg/BID (maximum dose for her weight of 18 lbs). After 5 days at this dose she developed, lethargy, anorexia, loose stools, vomiting. Electrolyes were normal, pancreatic values increased and her WBCs showed marked elevation.
I will instruct clients to feed 3/4 of their regular food with 1/4 of the new for about a week or so, then 1/2 and 1/2 for a week, then 1/4 regular food to 3/4 new food for a week then all new.

There are other dietary options to consider in the diabetic feline patient. Purina, Hill's and Royal Canin make a food that can be used in diabetes.
