National Pet Diabetes Month

November is National Pet Diabetes Month.  Not every pet parent understands that pets can develop diabetes, which is why many symptoms go unnoticed. Excessive urination is often the number one sign that your pet may have developed diabetes. This is especially significant if your pet, which has been housetrained for years, suddenly starts urinating in the house inappropriately. Other symptoms include a sluggish disposition, an unquenchable thirst, abnormal hunger and a sudden loss in weight.  Early detection allows the condition to be managed easier often with diet alone.  Simple things like monitoring your pet’s weight and annual visits to your veterinarian can mean a world of difference in keeping your pet happy and healthy. This November, remember to pick up on abnormal signs while observing your pet—it just might be a step to preventing diabetes in your dog.
