Diabetic dogs and cats living longer and healthier lives

We are hearing from more and more of our customers who are caregivers to a dog or cat with diabetes.

Animals that have a chronic health condition often have more compromised immune systems, so caregivers have to be even more alert for symtoms of secondary conditions developing.

With diabetes, infections are a common conditions that can develop: urinary tract infections, skin infections, and respiratory infections. If caught early, these conditions are very treatable.

Diabetic dogs and cats require close monitoring, and I look forward to the day when we can eliminate this disease, but it is heartwarming to hear how well many of these animals are doing.

With a cousin who passed away last year from complications of diabetes, I am very aware of how serious this disease can be.
