Diabetes in Dogs

Managing diabetes > Checkups

Regular veterinary checkups help identify changes in your pet’s condition.

Diabetes can affect a dog differently over time, even after a long period of stability. While you may feel confident in your ability to care for your diabetic dog, visiting your veterinary surgeon regularly will help you to successfully manage the condition over time. With a chronic condition like diabetes, it is important to stay in close touch with your veterinary surgeon and the clinic staff. You can rely on them to answer all of your questions and help you as you learn to manage your dog’s diabetes successfully.
