Cats and feline diabetes

Cats and feline diabetes


Cats are one of the most popular pets in North America. They are loving animals, capable of providing you with years of companionship. Like other pets, cats can sometimes get sick. There are several types of illnesses that cats can get, including feline diabetes. Feline diabetes is a serious illness, although it can be treated by a veterinarian.

Diabetes is more common in humans than in cats or other animals. The cause of diabetes is actually quite simple. Sugar, or glucose, is found in the blood. The level of sugar in the blood in the body or in animals is organized under control by the hormone insulin, which the pancreas produces. When the pancreas doesn't produce enough insulin, diabetes is to blame.

Symptoms of feline diabetes vary. The most common symptoms include increased urine and increased thirst. Other symptoms of feline diabetes include loss of appetite, weight loss and poor coat. An increase in thirst is easy to detect, because you can easily notice that the water dish is empty throughout the day.

If you don't get your cat treated for feline diabetes right away, they will eventually become inactive, vomit regularly, and fall into a coma. On the other hand, if you get the diabetes treatment on time, the cat will more than likely lead a normal and healthy life. Keep in mind that treatment doesn't happen overnight - it takes time and dedication.

Cats with feline diabetes should receive food at the same time each day. They should also be prevented from going out. If your cat has diabetes, you should give her insulin injections once or twice or per day. Once your vet checks your cat, he will tell you how many shots and how much insulin to give him.

Before giving your cat his insulin injection, you should always make sure that he is getting food first. If he hasn't eaten and you give him an injection anyway, he could end up with hypoglycaemic shock. It can also happen with too much insulin. A hypo can be really dangerous and should be avoided at all costs. If your cat experiences hypoglycaemic shock and you are not there, he may die eventually.

If you need to administer insulin injections to your cat due to feline diabetes, you should always monitor carefully after administering the vaccine. After your cat has been on insulin for a while, your vet may reduce the amount of insulin. Even if he will have to stay on insulin for the rest of his life, he will lead an otherwise healthy life.
