Pet Diabetes Awareness Month
November is National Diabetes Month, 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.
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.
