She is the first author of Loose-control of diabetes mellitus with protamine zinc insulin in cats: 185 cases (2005-2015) (2019; Canadian Vet J). This article showed that there is an alternative way to manage feline diabetes mellitus that is more beneficial to the cat as well as the practitioner when compared to traditional diabetic control.
