Webinar Session Details

Join us on Tuesday, August 25, 2020 from 6:00 - 7:00 pm for the AzVMA's Zoom Webinar, Managing the Problem Diabetic - Are We Expecting Too Much? 

  • This session has been designed for veterinarians & technicians.

Discussion Topics:

  • We need to re-evaluate our expectations for what diabetic control means in dogs and cats. 
  • Over-reliance on glucose numbers can lead to frustration on both the part of owner and veterinarian. 
  • Lack of control generally reflects a problem with either owner compliance, insulin activity, or patient factors (insulin resistance). 
  • Insulin problems can be divided into problems of either dose or duration, and should be ruled out prior to working a patient up for insulin resistance. 
  • If blood glucose monitoring is utilized, consider use of continuous glucose monitor over standard glucose curves.

Webinar Rates:

  • Non-AzVMA Members: $45
  • VHCTAz Member & Students: $10
