Diabetic Clinic

A support service for our diabetic patients and their owners

Diabetes mellitus is a surprisingly common disease in both cats and dogs.

Therapy includes daily insulin treatment and monitoring, some diet and lifestyle changes and regular check ups to look for possible urine infections and changes in weight, as well as proactive disease management.

To be told that you need to inject your pet once or twice daily can be a little daunting, but with our support we know that many pet owners settle into a comfortable routine with their furry friend. Our new Diabetes Clinics offer guidance and support both for owners beginning their journey with a diabetic pet, as well as for seasoned injectors!

What happens at the clinic?

At the free clinic, which is bookable throughout the day, our qualified Registered Veterinary Nurse Sophie Green will assess your pet’s weight, treatment, routine, lifestyle, diet and medicine handling. Any concerns can be discussed and a personalised plan is then made. You will always see the same person, as Sophie is the Diabetic Clinic Coordinator, so your pet’s individual circumstances can be fully taken into account.  We’ve found that many of the hiccups in treating diabetic pets can be prevented both by regular monitoring and excellent communication between pet owners and the veterinary team. For this reason we know Diabetic Clinics have been a really positive addition to our range of Nursing Clinics.

Diabetic Clinics are now available to book Monday – Saturday with Sophie Green RVN. Please call 01525 373329.
