November is Pet Diabetes Month

Is your cat or dog at risk for diabetes?

Is your cat or dog at risk? Many pet owners don’t realize diabetes can affect pets too. Common signs of diabetes in a dog or cat include excessive thirst, frequent urination, increased appetite, weight loss, and lethargy.

Awareness of the warning signs and regular checkups, including a physical exam, blood work, and a urinalysis are important ways to help assess the risk of diabetes and other common diseases in your pet. While there is no cure for diabetes, proper care can help your pet live a happy, healthy, active life.
