  • Diabetic pets

    Okay, I admit it. When I saw this topic, I was like "Really/" With all the years I've had dogs, I've never realized that pets were susceptible to diabetes. How wide spread is this? How can you tell if your pet might have a problem?

    More and more pets are being diagnosed with diabetes. I think it is one of those modern life style diseases that are affecting also pets. I am not sure if more pets are being diagnosed because they are less exercised and more obese or if it is simply because we have better diagnostic tools.

    I worked at an animal hospital and we were selling insulin and syringes every day. Warning symptoms are almost the same as in humans, increased thirst, increased drinking, lethargy.
