Endocrinology conditions 2019-01-23T09:58:10+00:00

Is your cat or dog eating, drinking or urinating more than normal? They could be suffering from an Endocrinology condition.

They could be suffering from a condition of the endocrine (hormone) system, such as Diabetes, Hyperthyroidism or Cushing’s Disease. Endocrinology problems are more common than you think, but thankfully there are a variety of ways of diagnosing and treating each condition to allow your pet to continue to live a full and normal life.

Taking a urine sample is the first step in determining if your cat or dog might be suffering with endocrine problems. Below is a selection of useful, informative guides taking you through the signs and symptoms of each condition, plus a look at the next steps once a diagnosis has been made.
