Cats and dogs with diabetes are commonly seen within practice -these cases may present as an acute emergency, requiring intensive nursing care and treatment,  or be diagnosed from consultations, such as obesity clinics, and need a more long term approach to treatment and management. To help owners manage their pets’ condition it is vital that we understand the physiology of diabetes mellitus and how to manage it both in the short and long term, whether as an in-patient or through out-patient care. This interactive Live Stream 1-day course will give nurses the confidence to both nurse these patients and give reliable client advice in the practice setting.
