Many older cats have undiagnosed diabetes. We are conducting research to help detect this disease early, before they develop clinical signs, so that serious disease is avoided.
We are looking for healthy cats of all breeds aged eight years old and over as well as diabetic Burmese cats (any age, either currently diabetic or in remission).
Your cat would need to visit us either at the Small Animal Veterinary Clinic at St Lucia or one of The Cat Clinic practices (located in Mount Gravatt, Paddington and Clayfield) for a quick screening test. If the test shows an abnormality, your cat will be offered a full diabetes diagnostic service (valued at $450) free of charge, and you will receive free veterinary advice on how to manage the disease.
If you have a cat that you think would be suitable, or for more information, please contact Mia on 0424-944334 firstname.lastname@example.org or the Centre of Companion Animal Health on 07-3365 2122 or call the Cat Clinic on 3367 0011 and ask for Susan.
As a thank-you for donating your time and your cat's time we have a free box of chocolates for you and a treat for your cat.
