This webinar will focus on diabetic cats and dogs that present particular difficulties. These include diabetics that present with ketoacidosis, or those that have failed to stabilise despite reasonable efforts to get their condition under control. Diabetes mellitus is occasionally presented with intercurrent diseases that may affect the management of the diabetes. In particular acromegaly is increasingly being recognised as a complicating factor, however hypeadrenocorticism, hypothyroidisim, and hyperthyroidisim will also be mentioned.
Case examples will be used to illustrate how investigations of unstable diabetics can lead to an improvement in the glycaemic control. Although this webinar follows on from “Diabetes melitus: from first consult to long term survival” given on December 1st 2011, the two presentation are entirely separate and can be viewed independently.
