Diabetes

diabetesJust like with humans, pets are susceptible to Type I and Type II diabetes. Diabetes poses serious health risks, but with proper care the condition can be managed and pets can live happy, healthy lives.

Diabetes is caused by a lack of insulin in an animal’s digestive system, inhibiting the ability to break down foods. This elevates blood sugar levels and results in hyperglycemia, which causes health complications when untreated.

There are many indicators of diabetes in pets, such as vomiting, dehydration, increased urination, change in appetite, and excessive thirst. It’s important to be observant of your pet’s behavior, and to bring them in for regular checkups so a veterinarian can detect any changes in their body chemistry.
