Introduction
Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common endocrinological cat diseases. However glucose levels
in blood according to normal values can lead to a false impression. Blood serum protein fructosamine level in blood may help as it points at glucose level increase over the past 2-3 weeks and it is not affected by a short- term glucose level rise or decrease due to stress or food intake.

Introduction
Uterine prolapse is a rare condition in small animals, occurring during or after delivery.
Objectives
The objective of this study is to describe clinical and surgical aspects of uterine prolapse in a feline.
Methods
A female feline, 1 year old NBD, with a history of having given birth to 3 offspring and two days after bleeding and uterine prolapse, was attended at VETHOS-FUCG. She presented dehydration (10%), pale mucous membranes and protrusion of uterus with smelly and necrotic areas. Anemia and leukocytosis were observed on the BCC. Lactated ringer solution, cephalothin (30mg/kg IV), metronidazole (15mg/kg IV), tramadol (3mg/kg SC) and uterine cleaning with 0.9% Nacl were administered. The animal was referred to the hysterectomy surgical procedure. It was induced to anesthesia with propofol (3mg/kg IV) and maintenance was achieved through 100% oxygen diluted iso urane associated with epidural anesthesia with lidocaine 2% (0.22ml/kg). A manual reduction of the prolapse was performed, followed by a retro-umbilical incision and opening of the cavity through the alba line, ligation of the ovarian pedicles with polyglactin-910 (2-0) and ligation
of the cervix with polyglactin-910 (2-0), Followed by the parker-ker suture, polyglactin-910 (2-0) and X suture, subcutaneous with polyglactin-910 (2-0) and mononylon dermal morphology (3-0) and Wolf suture.
Objectives
Compare and evaluate the glucose level monitoring methods using glucose and fructosamine level in blood during feline Diabetes mellitus treatment.
Methods
Blood samples with glucose and fructosamine results for monitoring method evaluation were used from 13 clinic cats with Diabetes and treated with insulin Lantus. Glucose monitoring results obtained domiciliary were used for the result comparison.
Results
Of the 13 cats only two animals had ideal glucose and fructosamine levels and three good ones (Feldman, Nelson, 2004) the last 14 days, as evidenced by domiciliary monitoring. This indicator levels and glucose monitoring of three cats showed that in spite of insulin therapy, the animals still come into hyperglycaemic state. Increased fructosamine level in two cats with supposedly good blood glucose control domiciliary showed latent periods of hyperglycemia. These cat owners admitted mistakes in feline diet and insulin injection. Three cats’ glucose pointed to hyperglycaemia, but fructosamine proved good glucose control that coincided with domiciliary monitoring results.
Conclusions
Fructosamine determination in cat blood serum is suf ciently qualitative and reliable glucose monitoring method in Diabetes melis case and allows evaluating glucose  uctuations in the last 2-3 week period.
