Our pets are susceptible to many of the same diseases as humans and because it is a disease that requires successful management for the best outcome, the spotlight this month is on Diabetes. As with many diseases, early intervention and recognition is best.
It is important that you recognize these symptoms. Be on the lookout for:
- Increased thirst
- Increased urination
- Increased hunger while losing weight
- Lower activity
- Thinning, dry, or dull hair
In an effort to preserve your pet’s long-term health, if you see any of these symptoms in your pet, talk to your vet about getting your pet screened for diabetes. If your dog or cat has been diagnosed with diabetes, use this checklist to get your questions answered and learn how to successfully manage this disease. With proper management and monitoring, a dog or cat with diabetes can live a happy, healthy, and active life!
