Dog nutrition plays a key role in treating the diabetic dog.
In pets, as in people, diabetes is a deficiency of the pancreatic hormone
called insulin. Insulin works by transporting sugar out of the blood and
into cells where it is used as energy. When the body fails to produce enough
insulin, sugar, in the form of glucose, accumulates in the blood. When
it reaches a certain level, it passes into urine. Since the chemical properties
of sugar attract water, a diabetic dog begins to drink water and urinate
excessively. These are often the first signs of diabetes visible to the
Other diabetic symptoms include listlessness, vomiting and poor hair
coat. Increased or decreased appetite along with weight loss are also common
symptoms in diabetic pets. Some
of these symptoms are common to other diseases. Your veterinarian can determine
whether diabetes is the underlying reason for your pet's symptoms. Sometimes
it's only when illness strikes, that we learn about proper dog nutrition.
Providing a healthy diet is the first step in improving you pet's natural
defenses and providing a strong foundation for good health. No amount of
drugs can correct the underlying problem of poor nutrition. With the older
pet, nutrition becomes even more critical. Increasingly, researchers, veterinarians
and pet owners are looking to and finding help through nutrition.
