Your vet requires you to inject insulin to your pet and to provide its meals at precise times of the day. Diabetes Pet Manager iPhone app notifies you when your dog or cat needs to take its insulin injection or its meal.
Monitor Your Pet
Diabetes Pet Manager reminds of the sampling times for the Blood Glucose Curve. It builds the curves for weight evolution, actual food intake and blood glucose. The app records hyperglycemic and hypoglycemic symptoms.
Inform Your Vet
Diabetes Pet Manager can put you directly in contact with your vet. The app can also send all the data and curves that has been previously recorded to your vet for preparing the next consultation.

WHAT THE APP DOES
Reminds of insulin injections and feeding times.
Your vet will ask you to inject insulin to your pet and to provide its meals at precise times of the day. Accuracy is crucial to the success of the therapy. Diabetes Pet Manager app can be programmed to notify you at these exact times.
- - Program insulin injection times: 1 to 2 times a day
- - Program feeding times: 1 to 6 times a day
Records the Blood Glucose Curve.
The Blood Glucose Curve is the best way to assess the response of the dog or cat to the treatment and to determine the needed therapy adjustments. The Blood Glucose Curve test consists of measuring the evolution of blood glucose concentration over a 12-hour period. Diabetes Pet Manager app guides you over the whole process of producing the Blood Glucose Curve:
- - Program times interval between 2 consecutive blood takings (1,2 or 3 hours)
- - Choose blood glucose unit: mg/dL (range 0-500), mmol/L (range 0-30), or g/L (range 0-5)
- - Get reminded of each sampling time by the app
- - Record data (times of the blood samples & blood glucose values)
- - View the Blood Glucose Curve in the “Reporting section”
- - Receive a monthly reminder to perform a Blood Glucose Curve
Monitors real food intake.
Sometimes, the dog or cat does not eat its entire ration. This has a negative impact on its glycemia, and may lead to insulin acting too strongly, causing hypoglycemia. The vet will need this information when she/he will reassess the efficacy of the treatment. Issues with feeding behavior may come from a lack of palatability of the diet. The veterinarian may propose the owner to change it.Diabetes Pet manager iPhone application gives the opportunity to note and record daily the food leftovers for each meal:
- - Estimate and record the amount of food leftovers of each meal
- - Watch the actual food intake curve in the “Reporting” section
Watches body weight.
A diabetic dog or cat should be neither too lean nor too fat. Veterinarians usually set a weight objective to their diabetic patients.The owner should weigh his/her pet every week, in average. The app pushes a reminder every Monday at noon. Diabetes Pet Manager iPhone app records the pet’s weight evolution and produces a curve for a 3-month period:
- - Choose the unit (lbs or kg) for the pet weight in the “My Pet” tab of the “My Vet and Me” section (do it only once)
- - Record your pet’s weight
- - Watch the weight evolution curve in the "Reporting" section
- - Receive a weekly reminder to weigh your dog or cat
Helps watch out for symptoms.
There are two types of symptoms in dogs and cats diabetes.Symptoms of hyperglycemia (too much glucose in the blood) indicate that the pet’s diabetes is not controlled well enough. Common reasons are a too low insulin dose and/or an inadequate diet. Observation of symptoms are an important part of the evaluation of the treatment and have to be recorded by the pet owner to the attention of her vet.Symptoms of hypoglycemia (not enough glucose in the blood) indicate that the injected insulin is acting too strongly or that the pet is not eating enough (or both). It is the principal and most severe adverse effect of the treatment. Severe hypoglycemia may be lethal. So, it is especially important to watch out for these symptoms.
Mild hypoglycemic symptoms can be handled by the owner by giving quickly the pet a carbohydrate-rich treat. These occurrences have to be recorded. If they happen too often, the owner should inform the veterinarian without delay.In case the owner selects one or more hypoglycemic symptoms, the app opens a window that reminds the dangers of hypoglycemia and advises to contact a veterinarian. Diabetes Pet Manager allows you to note and record daily your pet's symptoms:
- - Select and record the symptoms your pet has experienced during the day. They are presented in a list that distinguishes between hypoglycemic and hyperglycemic symptoms
- - Receive a special warning for hypoglycemic symptoms
Transfers the data to your veterinary surgeon.
Diabetes pet manager iPhone application gives you access to the information you have previously entered: phone, email and address of your vet and of a veterinary emergency service (if different) so that you can contact them directly from the app.
The app can also send directly an email of the report including all the information you have recorded to you or your vet. It is especially interesting for archiving purposes or for preparing the next veterinary consultation
