As a result of this wrong teaching and protocols for diabetes, veterinary medicine is in for a rude awakening as to what is really causing the rise in diabetes in cats. Veterinarians in general are ignoring the importance of the role of a proper and healthy diet in the treatment of this disease.
Ask your veterinarian their thoughts on the effects commercially produced cat food is having on either the increase and/or treatment of diabetes and see if they don’t agree with the following facts or statements:
• Diabetes is on a rise in cats
• Most of the nutritional learning veterinarians receive come from the pet food producers
• Commercial pet food producers are the major supporters of veterinary schools
• Dried pet food called “kibble” is loaded with carbohydrates and low quality protein like going to a fast food restaurant for every meal
Now there is evidence that the training they have received is flawed and the true protocol for treating feline diabetes is the same as treating human diabetes.
I strongly encourage you to get the full story and learn for yourself what is really going on the world of diabetes in cats. To get the full story and interview, http://tipsaboutcats.com/
Dr. Shelby Neely, VMD, has been the owner of a feline veterinary practice for over 20 years. She is a graduate of The University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Neely’s website: Ask The Cat Doctor was awarded the Readers Choice Award for Best Cat Health Website for 2012. The site contains over 1300 pages of medical, surgical, and behavioral information about cats, written exclusively by Dr. Neely.
With credentials like Dr. Neely, she knows what she is talking about when it comes to veterinary medicine. Joining Dr. Neely is an increasing list of veterinarians who are moving away from the general protocols and adopting a holistic approach to veterinary medicine.
Claude West the Senior Manager of Tips About Cats at: http://tipsaboutcats.com currently researching relevant topics to cat health, diet and disposition over the last two years as a blogger and supporter of “no kill” animal shelters. In my youth, I have learned much about how to enjoy and respect them because animals are a part of ranch life. I have been raising cats for the last thirty years and I am still learning from them.
