Comparative Medicine: Diabetes in Animals and Humans
Presented by Mary White, D.V.M., DACVP, Assistant Professor, Midwestern University College of Veterinary Medicine

Diabetes affects the lives of over 30 million people in the U.S., but humans are not the only species at risk for this disease. Cats and dogs can also be affected, with over 165,000 dogs diagnosed in the U.S. annually. Join Dr. White as she discusses the latest research in diabetes mellitus, or “sugar diabetes,” and how it occurs in both humans and animals. She will also detail what steps you can take if your pet
is diagnosed with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes.
