Diabetic Dog Food Brands – What’s Best?

I am a diabetic but I do not own a diabetic pet. My friend owns a diabetic dog and I have spoken with him and also researched the best diabetic dog food brands to present to my readers. I will also be posting some reviews on these products on this website very soon. In terms of diabetic dog food brands there are numerous out there in the market place. A few well-known names include Eukanuba diet food, Hills prescription weight loss food and Royal Canin. The best course of action to prevent diabetic dog complications is to go to your local vet to seek advice on diabetic dog food brands. The good news is with some care and love your dog should lead a normal, healthy life. Most diabetic dogs will not need special prescription food from the vet. As its owner you will have to monitor your dogs intake of food and his/ her activity levels. The main and most important point of controlling your dog’s blood sugar levels, especially if he/ she is a type 1 diabetes dog is feeding him/ her consistently at the same time every day. The amount of food you feed your diabetic dog should also be consistent. Like a human diabetic you need to feed your dog the right amount of protein, carbs and fat. Continue reading >>

    My 11-year-old dog was diagnosed with diabetes this morning. I had been feeding her a mid-grade corn- and grain-free dry food with a third of a can of corn- and grain-free wet food in the morning. My vet was a bit indifferent on the food, but recommended I switched to a hard, biscuit-like treat instead of semi-moist or jerky.
    I know Science Diet and Iams and a few other commercial brands make food for diabetic dogs, but I'm not thrilled at all with those brands. Does anyone know of any good brands? Is dry food really that bad for my dog? Would fruit or vegetables make a better treat (she won't eat biscuits or hard treats)?
    Thanks!

    Yes, dry food is bad for a diabetic dog. The best thing you can do is to switch the dog to a diet free from carbs, or with a very very low carb level. This means that any dry food is pretty much out of the question. You can feed a wet food, home made diet, premade raw or a home made raw diet. Make sure any premade foods have no veggies, grains or an extremely low level of it.
    Make sure you check the dog's blood sugar while making the switch. You can't just make the switch and then keep your dog on any diabetic meds (if you have any yet) and not check the blood sugar to make sure that the dog actually need any meds.
    If you do this your dog will have a happy life, pretty much "free" from diabetes. You most likely won't need to give your dog any meds, insulin etc.
    All carbs raise blood sugar, so eliminating carbs for a diabetic dog is the only thing that makes sense.

    Please do not rely on people (myself included) as your sole resource for how you should manage your diabetic dog!!!! This is something that can be managed but if you manage it inappropriately can end up in complete disaster. Talk to your veterinarian about your concerns on teh food and WORK WITH HIM on alternative therapies instead of just taking internet advice.
    Having said that I will tell you a few things and you can look them up for verification if you want. Every internal specialist that I've worked with or for has rec. a diet that is high in fiber/COMPLEX carbs. The fiber/complex carbs slow GI glucose absorption and decrease post-meal glucose spikes when compared to diets that are higher in simple carbs. The goal is to slow absorption of glucose in the dog's GI tract to gain better control of glucose in the blood stream. Many meats can be too high in fat for a diabetic dog so you have to be careful with that.
    Also, DO NOT assume that your choice of diet will just make miracles happen and your dog can live a diabetes free life and all will be well without insulin. Please follow your veterinarians advice concerning medications.

Diabetic Dog Food

Diabetes isn’t just something that affects humans. It can also affect animals. Diabetes is basically a condition that makes the body unable to regulate the blood glucose levels. This can either be due to a lack of insulin, or an inability to process the insulin. Once food is eaten, it starts to break down into glucose that is absorbed into the body through the bloodstream. Insulin is then required to take the sugar to the cells to be turned into energy. Without this, the body can begin to shut down, causing a lot of problems in pets. If your pet has been diagnosed with diabetes, you may need to consider a lifestyle change and switch to a diabetic dog food. There are two types of diabetes in pets, just as there are in us humans. They include Type 1 diabetes, where the body doesn’t make enough insulin, and Type 2 diabetes, where the body doesn’t respond to the insulin properly. Type 1 diabetes is more common in dogs. Type 2, however, is most common in humans and felines. Tips for Feeding Your Diabetic Dog When you are looking for a diabetic dog food, it is a good idea to look for a food that is meat based and high in protein, with moderate fat and carbohydrate percentages. When Continue reading >>

    Best diabetic dog food?

    I have a 5 year old pug who just recently came down with diabetes 2 months ago. He is currently on Hills Science Diet W/D but I would like to switch him to a much cheaper food. Any recommendations on a cheaper brand of food for him that I can get at a local store such as tractor supply?
    Thanks

    Thanks I dont think your going to find anything at a Tractor Supply. A smaller local pet store is going to be a better bet. You have to have something very low carb basically. Is the dog taking insulin? Innova Evo has a kibble that is very very low carb. They even mention it being safe for diabetic pets on their website.
    Innova Evo Pet Foods. Their canned foods would be ideal too. You can get a case of 12 big cans for only 23 dollars. The cans would be better to help him lose weight easier...

    He is on Humulin N insulin 2units Am and PM. He lost 10lbs when he got sick and went into the hospital for a week and that when they found out he has diabetes. He weights 21lb right now and before he was at 30lb. For W/D right now we buy 24 cans for $50 and it lasts us about 2 weeks. Its definitely racking up and wondering if there is anything else out there just as good and cheaper.

Dietary fibers are essential part of a healthy diet. This is a list of fiber rich foods with their soluble fiber and insoluble fiber components.

Finding Foods That Provide More Fiber For Your Canine

Most dog foods contain 2%-5% Fiber. That is more than enough for your pet to stay healthy and happy. In most cases. However, there are times when you need to increase the fiber in your pet’s diet. Sometimes your vet will recommend it. Or, you may be here because you pet is suffering from irregular bowels or straining and you want to go ahead and try food with more fiber. Probably the most important reason is that a dog with a healthy digestive system is going to have a stronger immune system. Dogs that do not have regular bowel movements are going to deal with constipation, bloating and fat gain — all three being very real problems that can be costly to treat. Finally, dogs with a poor diet may have impacted and smelly anal glands. Plenty of fiber can help with that. A High-Quality Food May Bypass These Problems Many dog foods use wheat and corn as filling agents. While dogs are meant to be omnivores, they are not expected to digest as much grain as we give them. In some cases, feeding your dog cheap food has the same effect as feeding your child white flour all the time. You may not need a “high-fiber” food, just a higher-quality brand that uses fewer of these “fillers Continue reading >>
