AAHA guidelines review the latest information to help veterinary teams address central issues and perform essential tasks to improve the health of their patients.


Diabetes management can be overwhelming and time-consuming for both pet owners and practitioners. To help with this challenge, the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is pleased to release its newly revised Diabetes Management Guidelines. This Web conference will cover the management of diabetic dogs and cats based on those guidelines. The speakers will discuss diagnosis, dietary and insulin therapies, and monitoring strategies. An overview of troubleshooting difficult-to-regulate pets will also be presented.
