- Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a chronic condition of carbohydrate metabolism disorders caused by relative or absolute insulin deficiency. DM is a common disease not only in humans, but also pet animals such as cats. The most common type of diabetes in cats, also known as Feline Diabetes Mellitus (FDM), is type 2 diabetes mellitus with a prevalence of 1:100-1:500. The incidence of FDM can be prevented by an effort of early detection through blood glucose measurement. A cat is diagnosed with FDM if there is a persistent conditions of hyperglycaemia with blood glucose levels >220 mg/dL. This study was aimed to determine the blood glucose level profile of cat patients at the Educational Animal Clinic of Veterinary Medicine Faculty, Brawijaya University as an early detection to prevention FDM in cat patients. The sample used are inpatient and outpatient cats that meets the criteria of "time limit", which is between the periods of 1 to 31 July 2016. This study used a prospective descriptive analysis. The results showed that out of 47 cat patients that were measured its blood glucose level, 39 cats (82.98%) had blood glucose levels below normal (<90mg/dL), 6 cats (12.78%) had normal blood glucose levels (90-120 mg/dL) and 2 cats (4.25%) had blood glucose levels above normal (>120 mg/dL) but still below 220mg/dL. By comparing the data of blood glucose levels it can be concluded that two of the cat patient that received health care at the Educational Animal Clinic of Veterinary Medicine Faculty, Brawijaya University, during this study, had the potential to suffer from Feline Diabetes Mellitus.
