When Your Pet Is Living with Cat Diabetes

Cat Diabetes

If you're already familiar with diabetes, you may have concerns when you learn that your pet is living with this condition. The truth is that cat diabetes impacts your pet's life, but that doesn't mean you can't help your cat live a healthy and happy life. At Acres Mill Veterinary Clinic in Canton, Dr. Stewart offers treatment for cats living with diabetes. Here's what you need to know about this condition.

Treatment Can Help Your Cat Live a Full Life

While your cat's diabetes diagnosis may be scary, it's important to remember that this is a treatable condition. With the help of a veterinarian, you can get your cat the treatment she needs to live a full and happy life.

Managing Your Cat's Blood Sugar

The first step in treatment is to get your cat's blood sugar levels under control. This may require insulin injections or oral medication. Once your cat's blood sugar is under control, she will need regular check-ups to make sure her condition is being managed properly.

Dietary Changes For Your Cat

You will also need to make some changes to your cat's diet. Your vet can help you figure out the best diet for your cat's needs. In general, cats with diabetes need to eat a high-protein, low-carb diet.

Exercise is Important

Exercise is also important for cats with diabetes. Just like in humans, exercise can help control blood sugar levels. You will need to work with your vet to come up with an exercise plan that's safe and effective for your cat.
