Diabetes Insipidus


Diabetes Mellitus is a common disorder in both cats and dogs. Most people, when they think of diabetes, think of diabetes mellitus. It is estimated that 1 in 500 dogs are diagnosed with diabetes. This condition is treatable and MANY diabetic dogs live a normal and healthy lifespan.

Also known as sugar diabetes, diabetes mellitus is a disease involving glucose (sugar) in the blood and insulin. Insulin is a hormone normally produced by the body to regulate blood glucose. Diabetes mellitus occurs when your pet's body has too much blood glucose either because he doesn't produce enough insulin for the body's needs. Insulin therapy is the most common and effective treatment. A special diet and exercise regimens are often recommended in addition to frequent follow-ups by your veterinarian.


  • Increased thirst and water consumption
  • Increased frequency of urination - sometimes "accidents" in the house
  • Increased appetite
  • Weight loss despite a large appetite may also occur

How using ThePetCheckup regularly can help

Once an effective treatment is established, diabetes can be effectively controlled and your dog or cat can enjoy a normal lifespan. The key is early diagnosis. Early diagnosis and treatment is critical for reducing clinical signs and prevent further complications from developing. Left untreated, diabetes mellitus can cause many other problems for your pet, and it can also be fatal.

By testing your canine or feline at home on a monthly basis with ThePetCheckup, you will also be able to determine if your pet may have a tendency to develop diabetes at a later time. If you are treating a pet with diabetes, continue using ThePetCheckup to see if any secondary illnesses are starting to occur.

Some of our most gratifying testimonials have come from customers who said that because they were able to bring in their pet at such an early stage of this disease (before outward symptoms appeared), their veterinarian felt that the diabetes will be able to be kept in check with a only a special diet.

We recommend using ThePetCheckup monthly between routine veterinary visits, to provide your dog and cat with a whole new level of preventative care.
