Pet Diabetes Awareness Month

Signs of Diabetes in pets.

Increased urination- urinating more often, in larger amounts, not being able to hold it as long

Increased thirst- water seeking, drinking a whole bowl of water at time, visiting the bowl more often

Weight loss- can sometimes accompany diabetes as pets are unable to use the sugar they are taking in

Increased appetite

Pets may sometimes experience lethargy and be less active in severe cases.

Some animals may develop acute cataracts

Unkempt hair coats, animals may be matted, have oily skin, or excessive dandruff


Owners know their pets the best never ignore any minor sign as pets naturally hide weakness, and sometimes signs are very subtle at first.
