Pet Diabetes Month (November) is a nationwide screening campaign to test the UK's cats and dogs for diabetes. Diabetes is increasingly common in dogs and cats over 6 years of age, overweight pets and certain breeds. Luckily, diabetes can usually be easily diagnosed using a simple urine test.
Some pets are at higher risk than others – use our quick online assessment to see if your pet is at risk of diabetes. If your pet is at risk, get in touch with your veterinary practice and have your pet tested for diabetes.
Further information on diabetes can be found on our website. For further advice, please contact your veterinary practice.
