About Pets and Diabetes
Diabetes in small animals (cats and dogs) is a growing animal health care concern. Lifestyles of pets generally mirror the lifestyles of their owners. America's urban leisure lifestyle (which is stated as a factor in the increasing incidence of diabetes in people) is most likely the leading cause of diabetes in pets.
Diabetes is a complex metabolic condition which results in the inability of the body to properly maintain and use carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. It is a life long condition that requires education and awareness for proper treatment.
