According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, one in every 200 cats, and one in every 400-500 dogs in the US are affected by diabetes. Similarly to diabetes in humans, pet diabetes can be managed with medication, diet and exercise. These 7 warning signs are commonly seen symptoms of diabetes. If you suspect your pet has diabetes, you should consult your veterinarian as soon as possible.
1. Increased Thirst
If your dog or cat suddenly cannot seem to drink enough water to quench its thirst, this may be an early warning sign of diabetes.
2. Increased Urination
