Diabetes in Dogs

"New insulin easier on dogs... Vetsulin, from Intervet Inc. of Millsboro, Del., derives only from pigs... is more compatible with a dog's body chemistry...

"One of every 200 dogs develops diabetes... usually at ages 7 to 9 years. The disease seems to be twice as prevalent in females as males" ("New Insulin Easier On Dogs." Dog Fancy, Oct. 2004: 57).
