    it The result is an increase in urine production and because the animal is effectively losing water from it s body it needs to compensate and so it develops an increase in thirst If your pet develops an increased thirst one of the disorders that your veterinarian will probably screen for is diabetes Blood tests and urine tests will help to confirm the diagnosis Because the glucose in the blood can not get into the tissues that use it for energy eg the brain these tissues can t function properly The animal eats more food called polyphagia in a vain attempt to increase glucose supply to it s tissues even though there is plenty already in the bloodstream In advanced diabetes complicated by the presence of ketoacidosis the following signs might also be present Depression Inappetance anorexia Vomiting diarrhoea Tachypnoea Jaundice especially in cats Oliguria or anuria in later stages Coma Complications Liver involvement is secondary to the diabetic state Diagnosis Diabetes mellitus is confirmed by diagnostic tests and diabetes must be differentiated from other causes of polydipsia and polyuria including Diabetes insipidus Fanconi syndrome Hyperadrenocorticism Liver failure Psychogenic polydipsia Pyometra Stress glycosuria especially cats Renal disease Blood tests Normal blood glucose reference range for dogs is 3 5 6 1 mmol l 63 1 109 9 mg dl In diabetes mellitus fasting blood glucose concentrations exceed 8 5mmol l for at least 8 hours after a meal NB Cats get stress induced hyperglycaemia in which blood concentrations may reach 8 5 12 5mmol l and this should not be confused for diabetes Glucose tolerance test used to determine if a mild hyperglycaemia is significant or not 1g glucose kg body weight is given intravenously as a 40 50 solution over 30 seconds Whole blood samples are collected into fluoride oxalate tubes before and after collection and at regular intervals In diabetic dogs the blood glucose concentrations fall much slower than they do in normal dogs Fructosamine and glycosylated haemoglobin are glycolated proteins that act as markers of mean glucose GHb is not affected by stress so is especially useful in cats or post prandial hyperglycaemia and gives an indication of glucose concentrations over the previous 2 3 months This test can be affected by anaemia or polycythaemia NB erythrocytes survive 68 cats 110 days dogs so changes in GHb will not occur quickly Fructosamine gives an indication of glucose levels over a 2 3 week period Fructosamine concentrations are approximately Fructosamine values micromol l Dogs Non diabetic 225 365 Recently diagnosed 320 850 Treated excellent control 350 400 Treated good control 400 450 Treated fair control 450 500 Treated poor control 500 Cats Non diabetic 190 365 Recently diagnosed 350 730 Treated excellent control 350 400 Treated good control 400 450 Treated fair control 450 500 Treated poor control 500 Limitations of fructosamine tests are cannot detect short term changes eg hypoglycaemia hyperthyroid cats with concurrent diabetes may have low fructosamine due to increased protein turnover rate Hypoalbuminaemia in

    in dogs Cause Unknown however hypersensitivity to antigens in the lumen of the intestine is thought to play an important role in the development of the disease Proposed causes are Immune disorders Several possibilities have been suggested The low concentrations of IgA reported in the intestine of German Shepherd Dogs may be a factor leading to reduced local immunity allowing antigens to cross the mucosal barrier of the intestine and there setting up an inflammatory response in the lamina priopria Drugs prostaglandin synthetase inhibitors cincophen and indomethacin non steroidal antiinflammatory drugs NSAIDs and cholinergic agents have all be implicated as possibly causing inflammatory bowel disease Diet some of the suggested possibilities for dietary influence are food additives e g carrageenan sulfated amylopectins and lignosulfonates can cause colitis in studies dietary antigens based on response to changes in diet Likely but not proven dietary deficiencies vitamin A folic acid pantothenic acid cause colitis in studies Infectious agents infectious agents have been found in affected animals but no direct link has yet been proven Other suggested causes parasites increased bowel permeability ischaemia biochemical and psychological causes Breed Occurrence Some breeds develop specific form of inflammatory bowel disease the Basenji and Ludenhound whereas
