Pet Illnesses

Diabetes: Exercise

The amount of exercise your pet takes each day should remain unchanged.

If an animal suddenly expends a lot more energy (e.g. longer walks, excitement about visitors) it burns up more glucose. This can result in an unduly low blood sugar level which may leave so little 'fuel' available for the brain that the animal could even lose consciousness.

If this happens, you must immediately administer glucose.
