Has your dog or cat been diagnosed with diabetes? While this can be upsetting for pet parents, there are a variety of pet medications to help you manage your pet’s condition. Through proper care, diabetic cats and dogs can live happy and healthy lives, but it will require extra care from their pet parents and veterinarian.
Diabetes in dogs and cats occurs in a variety of forms, the most common being diabetes mellitus. A lesser known and very rare form of diabetes in dogs and cats is diabetes insipidus, which affects a pet’s water metabolism. The treatment for this type of diabetes in cats and dogs will vary and will be determined by what your veterinarian believes is the appropriate course of management treatment.
Diabetes mellitus in pets will require a thorough management plan organized by a veterinarian. The management plan for diabetic dogs and cats might include prescription dog food or prescription cat food or veterinary prescription insulin, which will help to get your pet’s blood-glucose levels under control. To help ensure that you are providing your diabetic cat or dog with the proper dosages of insulin, you may be required to check their blood-sugar levels using pet medical devices and supplies like a pet blood glucose monitoring system. You will also need to always be fully stocked with insulin syringes for pets, blood glucose test strips for cats and dogs, and the insulin pet meds prescribed by your veterinarian.
