Diabetes Dog

Diabetes is a disease that is on the increase in dogs and cats, over the last few weeks we have diagnosed an increasing number of cases. Diabetes mellitus in pets is very similar to that in humans, it occurs when the body cannot produce enough insulin (type 1) or the body no longer responds to the insulin it produces (type 2), this insulin is vital for converting sugar in the blood to useable energy within the body. Diagnosis of diabetes is easy, with a simple blood and urine test, but it initially relies on you as the owner noticing a change in behaviour or a potential sign of the disease developing.

Signs which could hint towards diabetes include:

• Onset of drinking or urinating more than usual • Onset of excessive hunger without weight gain • Onset of reduced energy/ Increased naps • Onset of weight loss • Dull or thinning fur and coat

More information can be found on our website in the pet care section under the information tab. If you feel your pet has any of the above symptoms please call the surgery.
