A1C diabetes testing for your pet is recommended, but is it a test that you pet’s vet currently offers? Shockingly, the service is not provided by all vets, but it should be. This test detects pets that are at-risk for developing diabetes. With this information, the vet can begin taking the appropriate measures to protect the pet from the symptoms the disease brings. This is a very important test that your pet needs, so make sure it is one that you arrange!
