Diabetes Mellitus and Monitoring the Diabetic Patient

Diabetes mellitus is a relatively common endocrinopathy that occurs in both dogs and cats. The management of the diabetic patient is individualized and requires an understanding of the pathophysiology itself, as well as the necessity of frequent reassessment, open client communication and education, and clearly defined goals for the pet’s treatment plan. The veterinary technician is an integral part of successful diabetic patient management. Managing diabetic patients is not solely based on laboratory values and physical examination parameters, therefore open lines of communication between the pet owner and the veterinary team are imperative to success. This session focuses on the various tools available to promote successful diabetic patient management.
