What is Canine Diabetes mellitus?
Diabetes results when a dog's pancreas fails to produce enough hormone to digest carbohydrates. Sugars build up in the bloodstream rather than enter the body’s tissues where they would otherwise provide energy. (This is why diabetic dogs are often lethargic.)
Excess sugar in a dog's bloodstream can lead to several other conditions, including heart, liver and kidney disease, increased infections, slow healing, cataracts, blindness, etc.
Risk factors for dog diabetes include:
- Poor diet (high carbohydrate kibble)
- Steroid treatments
- Diestrus (several cycles in one breeding season)
- Genetic predisposition
Diabetes is more common in:
- Female dogs
- Pets fed a strictly dry kibble diet
- Overweight dogs
- Middle-aged and older canines
Common symptoms of dog diabetes mellitus include:
- Increased thirst, frequent urination
- Weakness, lethargy
- Signs of pain in the abdomen
- Cataracts (eyes cloudy rather than clear)
- Weight loss
- Muscle wasting
Diagnosing and Treating Dog Diabetes
If you think your dog might have diabetes, you should take him to a vet. A veterinarian can diagnose canine diabetes mellitus by examining sugar levels in the dog's blood and urine.
A recommended lifestyle change usually includes a healthy species appropriate diet. If your dog is overweight, you should help him lose weight gradually through diet and increased exercise but keep in mind that strenuous exercise can create another type of imbalance, so ensure exercise is consistent and moderate. Conventional treatment may also include regular injections of a blood-sugar-lowering drug. Your dog's feeding regime will be determined when a glucose curve is done by a veterinarian. This will indicate the best time to give the drug and when to feed your dog.
