Diabetes at animals

The first step in dealing with diabetes at animals is to  understand the  disease. It is important to know that the symptoms of  diabetes are  similar at humans and at animals, but special calibrated  devices are  required for testing blood sugar levels in blood. 1 out of  200 cats and a  out of 500 dogs is type 1 or type 2 diabetic.

Diabetes differs from one animal species to the other. For that  reason it is important to recognize symptoms at an early stage and  discuss the findings with the veterinarian. If there is an indication  for diabetes, further medical checks should be performed. The earlier  diabetes is detected the earlier short- and long term complications of  diabetes can be prevented.
Regular blood glucose checks are the base of a successfull therapy of  diabetes. Blood sugar tests should be performed under familiar  conditions in a home-setting which is part of a holistic care.
