Royal Canin is to host two free webinars on feline diabetes in June, featuring expert guidance from guest speaker and RVC endocrinology specialist Stijn Niessen.

The first webinar, “Pathophysiology of feline diabetes mellitus: understanding = curing”, will be held on Tuesday, June 16 at 8.30pm.

It will provide delegates with a focus on new developments in our understanding of the aetiopathogenesis of diabetes mellitus, as well as providing an update on the diagnostic process.

The second, “Increasing your diabetic remission rates in the cat”, will be held on Tuesday, June 23 at 8.30pm. This session will focus on the specifics of 21st century management of feline diabetes mellitus, taking a critical look at recent developments and separating speculation from fact.

Its aim is to help vets have a confident discussion with owners and convince them to participate in an evidence-based, safe and effective diabetic management protocol adapted to the specific cat-owner combination.

Ian Williams, veterinary support manager at Royal Canin, said: “Diabetes is one of the most common conditions experienced by companion animals, and its diagnosis can be a challenging time for both owner and pet.

“It’s therefore no surprise we’re expecting a lot of interest in these two webinars, which aim to guide vets and veterinary nurses through the condition, with a view to improving the diabetic management protocols they can offer both pet and owner.”

Practice staff can register for the webinars for free by visiting

CPD certificates will be made available online to those who attend the live sessions.
