Pet Diabetes Month

Did you know that it is Pet Diabetes Month?  This is a nationwide campaign to raise awareness and test the UK’s cats and dogs for diabetes. Diabetes is increasingly common in dogs and cats over 6 years of age, overweight pets and certain breeds.  Luckily, diabetes can usually be easily diagnosed using a simple urine test. Some pets are at higher risk than others and there is a quick online assessment to see if your pet is at an increased risk of diabetes.  If your pet is a risk then please contact us as during diabetes awareness month we are offering a free checkup and urine test.  You will need to print out a free voucher (click on the link) but we can help you with that at the practice if you have problems!
