Diabetes is a condition that affects many people. Did you know that pets can get diabetes as well? Our team at Compassionate Care Veterinary Hospital of Charlotte can treat your pet if they have diabetes. Below is some more information about pet diabetes.
There are several reasons why a pet could get diabetes. Causes of diabetes could be from genetics, pancreatitis, viral diseases that are infectious, steroids and reproductive hormones. Diabetes is caused by your pet's body not able to regulate blood sugar levels. Obesity can also cause diabetes in both dogs and cats. There are several types of diabetes: Type I, Type II, and Transient DM.
Come to Compassionate Care Veterinary Hospital of Charlotte as soon as you can to get your pet's diabetes diagnosed. Our veterinarian, Dr. Johnson, can check on the health of your pet through a physical exam and lab tests. Once the diagnosis of diabetes is made, Dr. Johnson can go over a treatment plan with you to get your pet healthy again.
It is very important to take your pet to the vet if you see any symptoms of diabetes.

I have used Dr Johnson ever since she opened this office and my pets love her to death. She is very caring and does not rush you and always answers your questions in layman's terms. She loves her work along with her associates.
