The IV glucose-tolerance test was performed in 71 diabetic dogs (fasting glycemia greater than 6.70 mmol/L) and in 20 healthy dogs. All diabetic dogs were characterized by various degrees of glucose intolerance as expressed by an abnormal glucose disappearance coefficient. On the basis of the fasting plasma insulin concentration (Io), insulin peak response (IPR), the insulinogenic index (delta I/delta G), and the total insulin secretion (TIS), the diabetic dogs were classified, as follows: Type… Expand
The intravenous glucose tolerance and postprandial glucose tests may present different responses in the evaluation of obese dogs.
The IVGTT showed that the loss of 20 % body weight resulted in an improvement of glucose control with reduced insulin secretion, and these same WR dogs showed higher insulin secretion with values similar to those of obese dogs when the GPPR test was used. Expand
Diabetes mellitus: an update
In human medicine, new techniques for controlling diabetes mellitus are pancreatic implants, constant infusion pumps for insulin and the use of the hormone somatostatin which suppresses glucagon secretion, but not all may be applicable to veterinary medicine. Expand
Age and body weight effects on glucose and insulin tolerance in colony cats maintained since weaning on high dietary carbohydrate.
It is indicated that body weight gain is more likely than dry-type diets to induce the pre-diabetic conditions of insulin resistance and secretion dysfunction in cats. Expand
Diagnosis of insulinoma in the dog: A study of 11 cases
It appears that insulin-secreting tumours retain a degree of responsiveness to a glucose challenge and that the IVGTT, using a dose of 0–5 g glucose/kg bodyweight, is a useful diagnostic procedure in dogs with insulinoma. Expand
Acid-base and hormonal abnormalities in dogs with naturally occurring diabetes mellitus.
Ketosis in diabetic dogs was related to the glucagon-insulin ratio with only low concentrations of insulin required to prevent ketosis, and acidosis in ketosis was attributable largely to high serum ketone concentrations. Expand
Compensation for obesity-induced insulin resistance in dogs: assessment of the effects of leptin, adiponectin, and glucagon-like peptide-1 using path analysis.
Fasting plasma leptin concentrations appear to be associated with obesity-associated changes in insulin sensitivity and compensatory hyperinsulinemia in naturally occurring obese dogs, and it is concluded that dogs compensate effectively for obesity-induced insulin resistance. Expand
clinical-pathological features of canine Diabetes Mellitus
Canine diabetes mellitus has increased in southern Brazil. In the etiology, obesity, sedentary life and stress appear to be the main factors. After diagnosis is recommended to identify concurrentExpand

The physiology of carbohydrate metabolism and pathogenesis of diabetes, including histopathologic findings, in dogs and cats are discussed in this chapter. Expand
Characterisation of diabetes mellitus in dogs
A new classification system for canine diabetes mellitus is proposed based on the basis of earlier studies and the newly gained knowledge and the following classes are proposed: juvenile; progesterone-related; secondary to pancreatic insult; endocrine tumours; iatrogenic; immune-mediated; and idiopathic.

Comparison of insulin signaling gene expression in insulin sensitive tissues between cats and dogs
Remarkable differences in insulin signaling gene expression between felines and canines indicate that cats may have an underlying low insulin sensitivity level due to low IRS-1, IRS-2, and PI3-K P-85α mRNA expression levels which would predispose cats to develop insulin resistance. Expand
