Diabetes in Cats and Dogs

Managing a diabetic dog or cat can often be a daunting prospect , from the initial thought of I can never inject my pet to trying to cope with the ongoing daily regime of diabetes management. However free help is at hand from one of our qualified and experienced Veterinary Nurses.

Ongoing Management

If your pet has been diagnosed with diabetes, the initial treatment to stabilise your pet will be undertaken by a veteinary surgeon, this may involve a stay at the clinic initially or day visits to perform glucose curves or simple repeat testing or glucose or fructosamine.

Subsequently your pet will then be referred to a diabetic clinic, where a verterinary nurse working closely with the veterinary surgeon will monitor glucose levels in either blood or urine, they will help to produce and maintain a feeding and medication routine as well as providing other help and advice as required. Your pet will be called back to the clinic regularly to ensure that the condition is well managed and monitored providing lifelong care, support and advice.
