UK feline, canine diabetes incidence skyrockets

UK pets are developing diabetes at an alarming rate, according to Animal Friends Pet Insurance. A report from the company found that since 2011, feline incidence is up 1,161% and canine incidence is up 850%. Pet owners should be alert to possible signs of trouble such as increased water intake and urination. Keeping pets at a healthy weight with appropriate feeding and exercise can help mitigate risk, experts said.
