Herbal Remedy for Diabetes Mellitus in Cats
Diabetes in cats is a common pancreatic disorder that occurs when sugar builds up in the bloodstream instead of entering the tissue to provide energy. If left untreated, your cat can be prone to infections, a slower healing process, and even blindness. Diabetes can also lead to heart, liver or kidney disease.
Some cat breeds are more prone to diabetes, such as the Russian Blue. You can find out if your cat breed is more prone to contract diabetes at NHV breeds and conditions online.
If you have questions about any of our holistic supplements, you can ask an expert at NHV because we want to help your kitty live a longer healthier life naturally.
