I called almost at closing when my cat, Gianna, was really sick, after I had been told from other vets in the area that they couldn’t see me for two days, and American Vet Hospital got Gianna in straight away. They were really friendly, great with Gianna, and correctly diagnosed her so fast. She was visibly feeling better by the time we left.

    The veterinarian at the clinic is very knowledgeable and has helped me with many issues with my pets–aggressiveness and fear issues with my dog, vaccinations of my dog and cats, etc. В He takes time to really talk to you about whatever issues you’re having. В I’ve also boarded my dog there for short periods of time, and they’ve been wonderful with him. В The staff are also all very friendly. В I’ve been going there for years. В With regard to cost, they are somewhat expensive but it’s worth it to me knowing that my animals have all the vaccinations they need and are healthy and happy. В They will work with you on cost if you mention that you can only pay for partial services. В They also have a discount coupon that you can use toward examinations. В The kennel area is always very clean and they take care to make sure that sanitation procedures are followed to a T. В There is a fenced-in area in the back of the building that is grassy and has toys for the animals that are boarding there. В When a dog or cat has surgery, they provide warm blankets for the animals to lay on while recovering. В All-in-all, this is an excellent place to take your pet if you love your animal and want it to have the very best of services.

    Diabetes in Cats: Prevention and Treatment

    “Does My Cat Have Diabetes?”

    Know the Warning Signs:

    Early symptoms:
    * В  Excessive water consumption
    * В  Increased urine production
    * В  Increased appetite
    * В  Weight loss
    * В  Lethargy

    Advanced stage symptoms
    * В  Dehydration
    * В  Vomiting
    * В  Labored breathing
    * В  Acetone smell on breath
    * В  Diabetic coma

    If you suspect that your cat may be diabetic, contact your veterinarian for an immediate appointment. В Early diagnosis is essential to managing diabetes in cats. Dietary changes and appropriate treatment can help manage this condition in cats and prevent further health complications.

    Diabetes in cats, also known as feline diabetes mellitus, is an increasingly common disease affecting 1 out of every 400 cats. Obesity is the leading risk factor for diabetes.

    “Overweight or obese cats are two to four times more likely to develop diabetes than cats with a healthy body weight,” says board-certified veterinary nutrition specialist Dorothy Laflamme, DVM, PhD, DACVN.

    Diabetes is a progressive disease. In the early stages, a cat may try to compensate for the body’s inability to metabolize glucose by increasing food consumption. Symptoms of early diabetes are frequent urination, increased thirst and appetite, and unexplained weight loss. Kidney disease and hyperthyroidism are two diseases that can mimic the symptoms of diabetes. A veterinarian can diagnose diabetes using blood and urine tests.

    All diabetic cats are started on insulin. Your veterinarian will decide which kind of insulin to use, what dose should be administered, and will show you how to give these injections at home. Don’t worry, the needles are very small and many cats don’t even know they’re being injected. Your cat will need monitoring to determine the response to treatment, this may include both blood tests and indicators you use in the litter box. Dietary changes to a high protein, low-carbohydrate diet are essential to help diabetic cats regulate blood sugar levels. В The good news is that 70% of these patients eventually do not need insulin.

    Some cats may require hospitalization following a diabetes diagnosis. These cats are typically suffering from a condition known as diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), which occurs when fatty-acid by-products build up in the blood stream. These byproducts, known as ketones, build up because of the cat’s inability to metabolize glucose. Symptoms of DKA include the smell of acetone on the cat’s breath (similar to nail polish remover), extreme lethargy, vomiting, and rapid, labored breathing.

    Without intervention, a severely diabetic cat may slip into a diabetic coma and even die. Diabetes can also lead to other health complications, including kidney and bladder infections, abnormal gait due to a neuropathy, and muscle loss.

    Most cats, however, do not require hospitalization. Dietary changes and appropriate treatment can help manage diabetes. A low carbohydrate, high protein canned diet can help control diabetes and may even lead to remission. Your veterinarian can make specific dietary recommendations for your cat.

    I truly cannot say enough good things about the staff here. They always go out of their way to make me and my dog as comfortable as possible. My dog gets stressed out very easily and the staff always takes their time with her. Thank you so much for all that you do.
