Caring For a Pet With Diabetes Can Be Tough

Like humans, when pets have diabetes, staying or getting slim is very important. If your pet is overweight, losing some pounds can help his cells better use insulin, a hormone that keeps blood sugar levels in check. That makes it easier for his/her body to turn food into fuel. The goal for any pet with diabetes is to keep blood sugar (or glucose) levels as close to normal as possible.

We can help you determine how many calories / how much food your pet needs every day.  We have prescription diets formulated especially for diabetic pets' nutritional needs. Ask us about the right food for your pet at your next visit.
