Most Common Veterinary Diabetes Conditions
Diabetes mellitus, or diabetes, is a chronic disease that occurs when an animal is unable to produce enough insulin and/or use it properly. Insulin is the hormone that breaks down sugar glucose; without it, sugar accumulates in the blood and spills into the urine, resulting in serious health conditions.
Diabetes in animals can occur in two forms: insulin-deficiency diabetes and insulin-resistance diabetes:
This is the most common type of diabetes and occurs when the animal’s body is not producing enough insulin. In this case, the pancreas is damaged or not functioning properly, causing animals with insulin-deficiency diabetes to need daily shots to compensate for their missing insulin.
This form of diabetes occurs when the animal’s body is producing some insulin but not utilizing it normally. Essentially, with insulin-resistance diabetes, the glucose (sugar) is not being removed from the blood. This type of diabetes is typically treated with daily shots of insulin to replace it as well.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is compounding and why is it beneficial over medication that’s commercially available?
Commercially available medications are often limited in the dosages, flavors and forms offered. That can be a problem for animals that get anxious when having to get an injection, that gag or vomit up pills or that lick up their topical medication in seconds.
That’s why caretakers need options. Veterinary compounding is the process of combining, mixing or altering ingredients to create a custom medication that’s tailored to meet the needs of an individual animal. Whether an animal requires a specific dosage, form (oral, topical, injectable, etc.) or ingredient that isn’t commercially available, compounding is a way to help ensure treatment can be administered easily and effectively every time.
