Evaluating a Novel Treatment for Feline Diabetes

Diabetes is a common disease in cats that is thought to involve significant amounts of oxidative stress, which may also be linked to many other diseases. Cats are not well equipped to handle oxidative stress, and therefore, antioxidant supplementation may help them (and their owners) deal with diabetes. This clinical trial evaluates how a nutraceutical antioxidant affects clinical signs and biochemical abnormalities in cats with diabetes.
