Diabetes in cats and dogs

Diabetes is complicated and while treatment can often be straightforward, difficulties can arise unexpectedly. Treatment can be lifelong and costly, and involves the carers’ commitment and dedication as diabetic pets require regular injections of insulin and constant monitoring.

Our vets now use the FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System. This is commonly used in diabetic people.

We are now able to understand a patient’s blood glucose levels over the whole day without the stress of multiple blood collections and hospital stays, and better tailor treatment for a long and happy life.
