Hi! I am Dr. Adrienne Mulligan and I am the owner of Camp Verde Veterinary Clinic and I am here today on behalf of to talk to you about cat first aid and administration of medications. Another older age kitty disease and obesity like this cat here is one of the major reasons the cats end up getting diabetes. So weight loss would be a really good thing for a cat like this. Diabetes is usually in cats over five years of age and it is associated with obesity and so keeping your cats trim can prevent this disease in a lot of cats. So when we treat diabetes, the main thing that they usually need is insulin injections and just like people we use small insulin syringes with small insulin needles and based on some tests that we do we then direct you how to give your kitty insulin on a daily basis, usually twice a day and it really involves a pretty easy little injection like that. That is not as painful as she acted. She is just a little grouchy. This is our grouchy home cat, so… and there is also a special diet that a cat with diabetes needs but basically insulin in diet is how we control that.
