Diabetes results when a dog's pancreas fails to produce enough insulin. Sugars build up in the bloodstream rather than enter the body’s cells where they would otherwise provide energy. (This is why diabetic dogs are often lethargic.)
Excess sugar in a dog's bloodstream can lead to other conditions including heart, liver, and kidney disease, increased infections and slow healing, cataracts, blindness and more.
Risk factors for dog diabetes include:
Poor diet (high carbohydrate kibble)
Diestrus (several cycles in one breeding season)
Diabetes is more common in:
Pets fed a strictly dry kibble diet
Middle-aged and older canines
Common symptoms of dog diabetesinclude:
Increased thirst, frequent urination
Signs of pain in the abdomen
Cataracts (eyes cloudy rather than clear)
Diagnosing and Treating Dog Diabetes
If you think your dog might have diabetes, you should take him to a vet. A veterinarian can diagnose canine diabetes by examining sugar levels in the dog's blood and urine.
A recommended lifestyle change usually includes a healthy, species-appropriate diet. If your dog is overweight, you should help him lose weight gradually through diet and increased exercise but keep in mind that strenuous exercise can increase insulin levels so ensure exercise is consistent and moderate. Conventional treatment may also include regular injections of insulin. Your dog's feeding regime will be determined when a glucose curve is done by a veterinarian. This will indicate the best time to give insulin and when to feed your dog.

How quickly your canine responds will be unique, and it is extremely important that blood sugar levels stay within a healthy range.
High blood sugar, as a primary health problem, causes a number of secondary problems to occur, as previously discussed. These include weight gain, thirst and hunger, among others. Once the primary issue begins to stabilize, the secondary issues may also begin to improve.
