Diabetes Mellitus is a common hormonal illness in dogs and cats which results in insufficient insulin production. This gives rise to high blood sugar levels within the body. Once blood glucose levels are exceeded, this jeopardises the renal threshold and results in glucose being excreted in the urine. A daily injection of Insulin is often the treatment of choice depending on the severity of the disease. In our nursing clinic you can expect us to measure your pet’s glucose level by acquiring a small amount of blood from your pet along with urine testing and weight checks.
