One exciting fact about diabetes in cats is that, unlike other animals, cats can often go into diabetic remission with treatment. This is most likely to occur if insulin therapy and diet changes are implemented as soon as a diagnosis is made. In these cats, the pancreas begins to produce adequate insulin levels again and they can be taken off of their injections entirely.
We know that it can be a very stressful time when your pet is diagnosed with any illness. We want to be able to best guide you through these times with as little stress as possible, and will be there with you every step of the way during treatment. Please reach out to the veterinary team if you need guidance, support or ever have any questions and we would be happy to help. With proper care and management, diabetic cats can go on to live long, great quality lives
