Diabetes prevents your cat being able to control their blood sugar levels. Blood sugars levels get very high, but their body becomes starved of energy. Symptoms include weight loss, drinking more, peeing more and low energy.
A dog with diabetes can't control their blood sugar levels (much like type 1 diabetes in people) and require lifelong treatment.
Some pets will struggle to digest a new food unless it’s introduced slowly into their normal diet – so, if your pet eats something they aren’t used to it may give them diarrhoea.
There are many conditions that cause diarrhoea in cats, ranging from minor to serious. Mild cases of diarrhoea usually pass within 24 hours.
Diarrhoea is very common in dogs and mild cases usually pass within a couple of days. Find out when to contact your vet and how you can care for your dog at home.
