Increasingly we are taking our dogs away with
us on holidays within the UK. What some
people don’t realise is that different areas of the

What is pet diabetes?

Diabetes mellitus is a common condition that affects the concentration of glucose, or sugar, in your pet’s blood. Diabetes occurs when your pet’s body makes too little insulin, stops producing it completely, or doesn’t utilise insulin properly which prevents the conversion of food to energy.
