Caring for the Diabetic Cat - What's New? 1/25/24
CVP partners with Dr. Cindy Ward and Boehringer Ingelheim to discuss new discoveries and treatments for diabetes in cats.
We invite you to join us for an informational session about the evolution of feline care. CVP teams up with Dr. Cynthia Ward VMD, PhD, DACVIM of Boehringer Ingelheim to discuss feline diabetes and new medication options.
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a common endocrine disease in domestic cats; although there are many reasons why cats become diabetic, most cats have underlying insulin resistance, much like people with type-2 diabetes. This presentation aims to provide an in-depth exploration of feline diabetes mellitus and common challenges when managing the feline patient.
Dr. Cynthia Ward will discuss:
- The latest insights on the pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of feline diabetic patients.
- Case examples to emphasize crucial aspects of the disease, treatment options, and potential outcomes.
- Advances in feline diabetes and how these will impact feline care in the future.
Join our exclusive webinar where we'll delve into the world of feline diabetes and how we can make a significant difference in the lives of cats living with the disease.
