So, Your Pet Has Diabetes?

Don’t stress! You’ve come to the right place and I am here to help. My name is Kaitlyn and I am a Licensed Veterinary Technician here at Helping Hands. I have first-hand experience when it comes to diabetes but not because I work in the veterinary field but because I have a diabetic cat of my own. His name is Spaz. He is 12 years old and he was diagnosed with diabetes around the age of 5. He is a prime example that you can have a pet with diabetes that can also live a long and fulfilling life! After working with the doctors here to get him on the right plan for his diabetes, he is regulated and living fabulously! I want to give some basic information and tips for anyone who has a diabetic pet or anyone who is worried their pet may have diabetes. Managing diabetes can be stressful but we are always here to help ease your mind and to make sure your pet can live a long and fulfilling life as well.
