One of the first symptoms noticed in a newly diabetic pet is a sudden loss of weight, usually despite increased hunger and food intake.
Untreated diabetics, or poorly-treated ones, may continue to lose weight until serious complications ensue. Some veterinarians like to begin diabetic cats on a course of oral medication such as Glipizide, to stimulate the pancreas to produce more insulin. Young insulin patient circa 1920's, before insulin, and 4 months after beginning treatment.


Our bodies normally are "fueled" by metabolizing glucose; they are able to do this provided they have enough insulin (normally or by injection). Once on regular doses of insulin, the animal's weight will generally return quickly, possibly even tending toward overweight. When there's not enough insulin to allow the body to turn its glucose into energy, it begins metabolizing fat to fuel its cells.
Because the glucose is once more able to enter body cells, it no longer passes from the body as urine[2] and the system no longer needs to use fat as its energy source.


It can also signal that the insulin currently in use may no longer be effective for that particular pet. A vet visit is suggested to be certain insufficient insulin dose or an need to switch insulins is the only problem.
