Metformin is used effectively in treating dogs with type 2 diabetes. Metformin will usually be prescribed by a veterinarian if the dog has developed an obesity problem or has become resistant to the effects of insulin.

Side Effects:

For the most part if the dosage of metformin is adequately prescribed and monitored there should be no side effects. However, an infrequent but notable complaint regarding the use of metformin is gastrointestinal upset. This can result in significant discomfort for the pet. Lowering the dosage usually corrects the problem.


Symptoms that you should be looking for when monitoring the use of metformin are, rapid shallow breathing, anxiousness, rapid heart rate, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, and fatigue. Contact your veterinarian if any of these occur.
