What is diabetes?

Diabetes occurs when the blood sugar (glucose) levels are too high, e.g. if the body is not producing enough insulin. It can usually be managed very successfully and your vet will explain in detail what is involved. There are usually 2 key steps in management:

    Providing insulin through regular injections
    Adjusting your cat's diet

The goal of treatment is to maintain blood glucose within a safe range throughout the day. As your cat's glucose level is stabilised, you should notice his/her condition improving.

This delicious complete veterinary diet has been formulated to help regulate blood glucose (sugar) levels in diabetic cats. It contains low levels of carbohydrate to reduce the upsurge in blood glucose that happens after meals, and high levels of protein to help stimulate insulin release from the pancreas.
