It is possible for our canine friends to develop diabetes. Dr. Kelsey provides an overview of potential symptoms in the video. We will be posting additional videos with information regarding medication, management, and diet.
Diabetes in dogs or canine diabetes is a hormonal imbalance disease caused by a lack of insulin in the dog’s body or an insufficient biological response of the body to it. To explain it further, when your dog eats, its body breaks down the food into simpler components. One of those simple components is glucose, and it is carried to the cells by insulin. Diabetes is when your dog can’t produce enough insulin by themselves, or the insulin produced is not used properly by the body. Moreover, glucose is not used inadequately either. As a result, your dog’s blood sugar levels will rise and cause adverse side effects.
