My true passion is providing holistic veterinary care for pet parents in my home town of Long Island. But, being one of the go-to veterinarians for the IheartDogs franchise has been pretty cool, too. It allows me to impact the health of dogs all over the world. Recently, one of the authors asked me about signs of diabetes in dogs.
One of the first and most common signs of diabetes in your dog is increased thirst. But, other signs that should lead you to schedule a visit with me — or with your local veterinarian — include:
- An increase in urination;
- An increase in appetite;
- Weight loss, even if your dog still appears to be overweight;
- A cataract diagnosis; and
- Signs of dehydration.
Any of these six symptoms warrant a call to your veterinarian.
