Pet Diabetes Awareness | National Pet Diabetes Month

Both cats and dogs can become diabetic. Some pet owners are not aware that this can happen to their beloved furry companions. While diabetes cannot be cured, it is certainly manageable with proper veterinary care and regulation.

Since November is National Pet Diabetes Month, we're sharing some information about pet diabetes so that pet owners can know what to look for. First, it's important to know the basics of diabetes in pets. Specifically, Diabetes Mellitus Types I and II.

Type I Diabetes Mellitus commonly affects dogs and occurs when your pet's pancreas does not make enough insulin. When this happens, insulin injections must be given daily. Insulin is a hormone that is produced in the pancreas that regulates the amount of glucose in the bloodstream.

Type II Diabetes Mellitus occurs when the pancreas produces some insulin, but it's not enough or the body can't use it properly. Cats are often affected by Type II Diabetes Mellitus. Insulin injections are also the treatment of choice for this type of diabetes. The good news is that Type II diabetes can go into a remission of sorts and not require treatment for the entirety of the pet's life.

For a few weeks, we've been discussing dental health for pets and introduced a new daily dental routine for our dog in the process. Our daily dental routine for Shiner includes three products from TropiClean:


In our last dental health post, we discussed the TropiClean Clean Teeth Gel. Today, we're going to share more about the TropiClean Water Additive and how it helps to provide dogs and cats with essential daily oral hygiene care.
