Signs of a diabetic cat
Feline diabetes develops when your cat cannot properly process or dispose of sugar. Insulin, produced in the pancreas, is the hormone that regulates sugar in cats (and humans, too).
When sugar is not properly regulated, these symptoms may appear in your cat:
1. Frequent urination
2. Excessive thirst
3. Excessive hunger
4. Rapid weight loss despite normal or above-normal food consumption
If your cat is displaying any of these symptoms, contact your veterinarian immediately for an appointment and diagnosis. And take a deep breath, because you’ve taken the first step toward helping your cat: Feline diabetes is treatable and can be managed through diet and medicine.
