Home / NEWS & MEDIA / Diabetes Pet Care Alliance™ Sets Sights on Undiagnosed Patients
Companies renew commitment to help drive in-clinic diabetes awareness and diagnosis
(Sept. XX, 2015) — To help assist veterinary practices identify new diabetes cases and jump-start management of the disease, the Diabetes Pet Care Alliance™ is rolling out a program in alignment with November’s National Diabetes Month. Formed in 2014 via collaboration between Merck Animal Health, Nestlé Purina PetCare and Zoetis, the Diabetes Pet Care Alliance™ is extending its mission by equipping more veterinary practices with vital tools and resources relating to diabetes awareness.
Beginning October 1, veterinary clinics can enroll to participate in the Diabetes Pet Care Alliance™ by visiting www.usa.petdiabetesmonth.com. As part of National Diabetes Month, this special program will kick off November 1 and run through December 31, 2015. Since the program can only accommodate the first 500 veterinary practices to enroll, veterinarians are encouraged to enroll their practices as soon as possible.
Participating clinics will receive client education tools from the Alliance to aid with diabetes awareness and screenings. Additionally, owners whose pets are diagnosed during this program will receive a free Diabetes Pet Care Alliance disease management kit from participating clinics. These management kits include the following:• One AlphaTRAK® 2 Blood Glucose Monitoring System from Zoetis • One bag of Purina® Pro Plan® Veterinary Diets DM Dietetic Management® Feline Formula or DCO Dual Fiber Control® Canine Formula from Purina• One 10 mL vial of Vetsulin® (porcine insulin zinc suspension) from Merck Animal Health
Diabetes mellitus affects an estimated one in 230 cats and one in 300 dogs1,2, with incidence on the rise. Unfortunately diabetes in pets tends to be under-diagnosed. This is especially true in cats, which—unlike dogs—suffer primarily from Type 2 diabetes, which is often related to obesity. Through the Diabetes Pet Care Alliance, veterinarians can take advantage of additional tools to make their clients aware of the clinical signs of diabetes so that more patients can be screened, diagnosed and treated.
