Whether you enjoy seeing diabetic patients or avoid those appointments like the plague, diabetes is not going away. Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common endocrinopathies we see in small animal practice. While diagnosing diabetes can be straightforward, the treatment of diabetes may be anything but easy. Some patients respond quickly to management, while others take months to regulate.

In this lecture, we will be discussing strategies for managing our diabetic patients. We will discuss the typical management of diabetics, as well as recent advances in treatment and monitoring options. We will discuss possible causes of complications and how to handle them when they arise. We will have a selection of case-based examples to guide our discussions on how we can better manage these finicky patients.

Because of the COVID-19 social distancing regulations, the venue allows a maximum of 38 participants. Registration is required for attendance, and seats will be provided on a first come first serve basis. Please register early to avoid disappointment!
