What you need to know if your cat has diabetes
Diabetes mellitus is a relatively common disease of cats. Treatment of this condition can be both challenging and rewarding. Diabetic cats can lead long, healthy lives if the condition is managed, and there can be periods when insulin treatment is no longer required (diabetic remission). A close rapport between the cat owner and their veterinarian is required for successful outcomes because much of the treatment and monitoring is performed by the owner at home under veterinary guidance.
This webinar will cover what you need to know if your cat has diabetes. Better understanding of the disease and its treatment will reduce your stress and help you to achieve the best long-term outcome for both you and your cat.
