Top Guide For National Pet Diabetes Month
If your pet is looking lethargic, drinking less but having to use the little pet’s room more often, it might mean more than just old age.
With National Pet Diabetes Month upon us, the pet sitters of Bucks County would like to stress the importance of having your pet tested for diabetes. Your veterinarian is a key player in diagnosis, prevention and maintenance when it comes to pet diabetes and so many other diseases.
According to Merck Animal Health, diabetes in cats can be detected if a cat always seems hungry or thirsty without gaining weight, their hair appears to be thinning or if they are frequently urinating. Symptoms are similar in dogs, but dogs with diabetes tend to develop cloudy eyes.
You can screen your pet with any reputable veterinary organization in our service area. Penn U is a fantastic resource for diabetic pet owners, and earlier this year, Erie News Now reported the launch of the Diabetes Pet Manager app for iOS.
