How To Feed A Dog With Diabetes

Saturday, August 12, 2017
posted by Jim Murphy

cutestpupIf your dog has diabetes, how you feed him could be critical to managing the disease. For dogs taking insulin, food must be given in the same amount and at the same time everyday to keep blood sugar levels constant. The key to maintaining good heath is balancing food and insulin with exercise. Your veterinarian may prescribe a specially formulated dog food, usually with higher fiber and lower fat than regular dog rations. Treats between meals should not be given. Homemade diets are not good for a diabetic dog because they are too variable. Diabetic dogs do best when they are at their ideal weight. Your veterinarian will recommend a diet to keep a dog that is heavy or too thin at his ideal weight.
