Distal polyneuropathy was associated with diabetes mellitus in 7 cats. Clinical signs relative to the neuropathy included a plantigrade stance, depressed patellar reflexes, hindlimb weakness, and poor postural reactions. Electromyography demonstrated reduced conduction velocity in the sciatic and ulnar nerves in 3 cats. A total of 5 cats had abatement of clinical signs following insulin therapy and blood glucose regulation or after resolution of the diabetes mellitus.
