TOP 008: The Dangers of Pet Diabetes with Rachel Poulin, RVT of AIMVT



With the aim to continue covering the most important topic for pet owners – pet nutrition, pet food and everything related to this subject matter – this week we’re discussing pet diabetes.

The reason we’re jumping into one of the most common issues many pet owners deal with today is because diabetes in dogs and cats is directly related to pet food and the way we feed our companions. Pet obesity is one of the leading risk factors for pet diabetes, and the numbers continue to rise according to data, which is why it’s important for all of us to learn and educate ourselves on how to deal with and prevent obesity and diabetes in pets.

For our eight podcast episode, I spoke with someone who knows a lot about this subject – Rachel Poulin, a registered veterinary technician and the president of the Academy of Internal Medicine Veterinary Technicians (AIMVT). Rachel told me about the risk factors and warning signs of diabetes in pets, and provided a lot of great tips and advice about prevention and treatments.

Did you know that one in five dogs will be diagnosed with canine diabetes in their lifetime? Did you know that cats can go into diabetic remission with the proper treatment? You can learn more about all the data in this week’s podcast episode as well as what you can do to ensure you and your pet don’t have to experience any of these health problems.
