Overview

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a treatable condition that requires a committed effort by veterinarian and client. Due to many factors that affect the diabetic state, a pet’s changing condition, and variable response to therapy, management of DM is often complicated. 

Conclusion

Management of DM requires the commitment and coordinated efforts of the veterinary healthcare team and the pet-owner client. For this reason, proactive client education is an essential component of a DM treatment plan.

Diagnosis and assessment

These guidelines describe different approaches to DM diagnosis and assessment depending on the level of hyperglycemia and the presence of clinical signs.
