I read some interesting statistics on diabetes from the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). According to this report, diabetes has been increasing at a 5% rate per year in both people and pets.
It is 1 of the 5 most common diseases in dogs and 1 in 3 in cats.
I feel really fortunate that when Chloe’s glucose level tested so high last year, we were able to get it in the normal range just with diet. I am now investigating higher quality diets that will keep her in the normal range but provide better nutrition. I test her every 3 weeks of so with ThePetCheckup and she is not spilling any glucose in her urine. That’s the way to go Chloe!!
