Special Issue "Diabetes Mellitus in Companion Animals"
A special issue of Veterinary Sciences (ISSN 2306-7381).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2016).
I am delighted to announce a Special Issue of Veterinary Sciences devoted to new research in feline and canine diabetes. This issue is aimed at improving our understanding of its pathogenesis, diagnosis and management. Diabetes mellitus is a common endocrinopathy in pets, and can markedly reduce the quality of life for the pet and its owner, especially if good glycemic control cannot be achieved. It may ultimately result in euthanasia. Therefore, improved understanding leading to better prevention, earlier diagnosis and better management can save lives. I invite researchers to submit manuscripts that will advance our knowledge of diabetes mellitus in companion animals, for the benefit of veterinarians, pets and their owners.
Emeritus Prof. Jacquie Rand
