WHAT THIS PRODUCT CURES
IPETCS iPet Test Strip is used to detect high glucose levels within the blood of cats and dogs.

PET SYMPTOMS

Glucose is the body’s major source of energy as this simple carbohydrate circulates the blood. The normal level of blood glucose levels, also known as sugar levels, within the dog is 75-120mg. A canine with high levels of blood glucose is known to have hyperglycemia. In a healthy dog, a hormone known as insulin regulates blood sugars as the pancreas releases this hormone when glucose rises. Low levels of insulin or insulin deficiency will result in high blood sugar levels.

Hyperglycemia can be caused by diabetes, diet chances, hormonal changes, pancreatitis, and infections of the body. Diabetes mellitus is characterized by an absence of insulin which is normally produced by the endocrine system of the pancreas. In canines, two subcategories exist for diabetes; insulin resistant diabetes and insulin deficient diabetes. Insulin resistant diabetes is usually caused by a hormonal drug or medical condition which transforms the body to resist the needed insulin. Insulin deficient diabetes is a destruction of the cells which produce the insulin; these cells are part of the pancreas. 

PET AILMENTS

The signs to look for include; excessive hunger, loss of body weight, increased urination, and increased thirst. After a certain point in time the aliments will worsen resulting in depression, vomiting, anorexia, and lethargy.

Small canine breeds including dachshunds, beagles, miniature poodle, schnauzers, and cairn terriers.
