Our diabetic clinics offer advice and support for owners of newly diagnosed and long-term diabetic animals.
Our nurses aim to help you understand diabetes mellitus as well as the implications and expectations of managing your pet’s condition at home. This includes medical, dietary and exercise advice, as well as learning how to administer insulin, recognise emergency situations such as hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) and to provide a friendly point of contact.
We encourage the use of a diabetic monitoring app, or home diary, because tracking how your pet behaves at home is essential to the management of diabetes and helps us to monitor clinical signs; a reduction of which is a key aim of treatment. Our clinics involve an examination of your pet alongside a weight check, blood and urine testing, and a general chat to see how you are coping with managing your diabetic pet at home.
