WVC 91st Annual Conference
General Veterinary Technician Session: Diabetes is a complicated stressful and challenging disease that calls on pet owners to in some respect become medical assistants in their own homes. Blood acquisition, insulin injections, proper nutrition and being able to identify potential complications early on so they don’t quickly develop into an emergency. This is a huge undertaking for a client, even if they have some degree of medical background. The majority however, do not. It is our responsibility to ensure they are set up for success and have been given the proper tools, guidance and education to take care of their diabetic pet at home. This course will discuss how to teach this information and offer tools and tips to set up our diabetic pet parents for success.
