Despite the obvious differences between dogs and cats and humans, the diseases we all experience are virtually the same. As an example, in the past 2 weeks I've seen 2 new diabetic dogs and 1 new diabetic cat. All 3 were showing the typical indicators of diabetes: drinking and urinating more, and losing weight. Often, diabetic pets eat more while still losing weight. If you notice changes like these in your pets--or for that matter anything that seems out of the ordinary--give us a call or shoot us an email any time.
