Diabetic Health of Felines
Did you know that cats can get diabetes just like people can? If a cat’s blood sugar levels or higher than normal she can develop feline diabetes. The disease can also develop when there isn’t enough insulin produced in the body to regulate sugar levels. Because of diabetes, your cat may come down with other illnesses or health related issues. For instance, cats with diabetes often develop frequent UTIs which involves excessive urination, drinking more, possible blood in the urine, and even urinating in various places in the house. Pancreatitis is also associated with diabetes and often develops in cats with diabetic history. Pancreatitis involves an inflammation of the pancreas and may include symptoms such as lethargy, depression, vomiting, abdominal pain, dehydration, diarrhea, etc. If you see any of these signs in your cat or other signs of abnormal health or behaviors, call your Benson Animal Hospital pet clinic Dunn, NC.
