Feeding guide

It is important to closely monitor the cat’s glycaemia during the first weeks of feeding Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets DM ST/OX Diabetes Management in order to adjust the insulin dosage. Feline DM ST/Ox DIABETES MANAGEMENT can be fed for life if necessary. Feline DM ST/Ox DIABETES MANAGEMENT can also be used for weight loss and its formulation may increase satiety1. It is recommended that a vet’s opinion is sought before use or before extending the period of use. Fresh, clean drinking water should always be available.
