Successful management of diabetes mellitus takes nothing less than a team effort. While technicians have always had a role in diabetes management, completion of this course will empower them to be the team's "go-to" supporter of diabetic pets and the people who care for them. 

Ready to become your team’s “go-to” expert for diabetic pets? Gain vital knowledge and boost your confidence in managing diabetes in pets with the Diabetes Educator Certificate Course on VetFolio. Not a technician but have one on your team who has a knack for managing diabetes? The Diabetes Educator Certificate Course makes a perfect gift for the holidays!

During six engaging modules, participants will:

  • Gain an understanding of diabetes in dogs and cats, including how diabetes develops, is diagnosed, and treated.
  • Learn to leverage your support staff by educating them on how to manage client questions and how to understand when a diabetic emergency is occurring.
  • Gain knowledge on home care team responsibilities and identifying and avoiding diabetic emergencies.
  • Learn the differences between feline diabetes and canine diabetes, which insulins are typically used, and how to identify and manage stress hyperglycemia.
