Ep 26: Diabetes is not a death sentence! Tips for diabetic pet owners
Show Notes

A diagnosis of diabetes is one of the scariest things a pet owner can hear from the vet, yet it is all too common!  Fortunately, diabetes in dogs and cats is manageable with diet control and insulin therapy.  Porcine insulin is the top choice for insulin therapy and Vetsulin is the only FDA-approved product for management in dogs and cats.  Dr. Richard Stone, a veterinary internal medicine specialist serving as the current VP of medicine for  BluePearl Specialty and Emergency Animal Hospitals, joins Dr. Jen the vet and Dr. Jason to chat all about diabetes in pets.  From clinical signs to treatment to managing snacks, the conversation covers everything a pet owner needs to know about their diabetic pet!
