    Ep 26: Diabetes is not a death sentence! Tips for diabetic pet owners

    Ep 26: Diabetes is not a death sentence! Tips for diabetic pet owners

    A diagnosis of diabetes is one of the scariest things a pet owner can hear from the vet, yet it is all too common!  Fortunately, diabetes in dogs and cats is manageable with diet control and insulin therapy.  Porcine insulin is the top choice for insulin therapy and Vetsulin is the only FDA-approved product for management in dogs and cats.  Dr. Richard Stone, a veterinary internal medicine specialist serving as the current VP of medicine for  BluePearl Specialty and Emergency Animal Hospitals, joins Dr. Jen the vet and Dr. Jason to chat all about diabetes in pets.  From clinical signs to treatment to managing snacks, the conversation covers everything a pet owner needs to know about their diabetic pet!

    V's view is all about lying and cheating…and found at the 12:20 mark!

A fun, witty vet duo!

Whether a vet, an animal lover or dog owner, you’ll find this podcast super helpful and fun. This brother-sister duo make each segment interesting, relatable and describe everything in layman terms. Definitely a must-listen!

A Must for Pet Parents!

I love that these veterinarians discuss vet medicine in a super fun, in-depth way! There are so many dimensions to animal health and this brother and sister duo nail it. I could see how their audience would be veterinarians because they have a number of expert vet guests addressing challenging topics, but I love it because I feel like I’m going behind the scenes in vet med and am a super educated pet parent! Would recommend this podcast to vets and pet parents!
