Your Dog and Kidney Issues

Just the other day a friend of mine called me to say that her dog was drinking excessively and urinating quite a lot. She had noticed a slow change in her beloved pet for a week or so before deciding that she needed the veterinarian. Her fear was kidney failure because her dog is an older dog, but when taken to the vet she found that it was diabetes.
Now this is not a great diagnosis, for sure, but it’s better than kidney failure. He is now on shots to control the diabetes and seems to be feeling better.
It is important that you watch your pet for any changes in their diet, drinking habits or bowel movements. A change in any of those things may indicate a problem. Boo
