Pips Drinking Problem

9th March 2011

Pip is a 10 year old Yorkshire Terrier. His owner recently noticed his drinking had increased and was getting her up several times in the night to urinate. Blood tests revealed Pip's glucose was high and he was diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus. This means Pip could not regulate his sugar levels.

Pip was started on insulin injections and although his owners were at first a little apprehensive, within a couple of days they felt comfortable injecting Pip at home. Pip will need long term treatment and monitoring, but he has responded very well to treatment and his drinking has reduced. He has much more energy and is enjoying his walks once again.
