Diabetes In Dogs: What You Need To Know To Keep Your Pet Healthy And Happy

Dogs can get diabetes, a hormonal disease where the pancreas doesn't make insulin anymore. Diabetes in dogs is rare. However, over the years it continues to rise – in both dogs and cats. Holistic vets say that when you provide your dog with a balanced, wholesome diet and essential natural supplements, you eliminate the chances of diabetes. The signs and symptoms of diabetes in a dog are not that specific. Look out for these: drinking more than usual, urinating more thanusual, losing weight and vomiting. A vet will test your dog for ketones and glucose concentrations. The best way to feed a dog with diabetes is to offer a raw food diet.
