If your cat has been diagnosed with diabetes, we know you are concerned. While there is no cure, the disease can usually be managed quite well with the support of your veterinary team. Because this is a chronic disease, it can change over time, so your veterinary team will want to re-evaluate your cat often to avoid serious and potentially life-threatening complications.
