I just found this wonderful video on Diabetes in Cats on Steve Dale’s Pet World. Steve is interviewing Dr Sandy Wright, an internal medicine specialist from the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine.  This is an especially great video for newbies who have just been diagnosed.

Meet 2Pac

6 January 2012

2Pac is my magnificent sugar baby. He was diagnosed with feline diabetes mellitus at the tender age of 13. He is now 17 years old and going strong. He is my baby love and my inspiration for creating this site. Without 2Pac, none of this would be possible. I hope that you benefit as much […]
