owner of a diabetic cat. None of the information or comments
available on this site or in any of the links is a substitute
for proper professional veterinary advice. If you suspect that
your cat might be diabetic, has any other medical condition, or
is an any other way unwell, please contact your veterinary
surgeon for proper professional advice.
note: All information and opinion in the Susie, Diabetic Cat pages is from personal
experience. Nothing in these pages is intended to be a substitute
