Diabetes in Dogs

Managing diabetes > Exercise

Exercise helps keep pets active, healthy, and happy. But for diabetic dogs, exercise needs to be regulated because activity affects your dog’s blood glucose concentrations. It’s best to create a consistent exercise routine for your diabetic dog to avoid sudden changes in energy (glucose) requirements.

If you’re concerned about the amount of exercise your diabetic dog needs, ask your veterinary surgeon.
