Pet Diabetes Awareness Month
November 1 – November 30 CDT
Pet Diabetes Awareness Month is observed in November, and while this month was originally designed to increase awareness of this common endocrine disease in humans, it is important to be aware of the growing prevalence of diabetes in dogs and cats also. Untreated, diabetes mellitus can be fatal in dogs and cats.
Pet Diabetes Awareness Month reminds us that if you notice your pet exhibiting signs of excessive thirst or excessive urination, please bring your pet into your veterinarian as soon as possible. With diabetes, the sooner it is diagnosed, the sooner it can be treated.
