Flash glucose monitoring is a novel, non-invasive monitoring technique, which is increasingly used in the management of small animal diabetes. This chapter provides guidance on the use of flash glucose monitoring in cats and demonstrates how this technique can be utilized in a range of feline diabetic cases, including those in which management is proving challenging. Other aspects of complicated feline diabetes cases are also discussed, including management of the sick diabetic cat, potassium depletion myopathy and treatment options for cats with hypersomatotropism-associated diabetes mellitus. The use of Toujeo® insulin glargine as a promising new long-acting insulin for diabetic cats is also discussed.
