Question: Susie has been diabetic for 3 yrs & is doing well over-all,with insulin 2/day.
She’s been on Science Diet w/d,but all I read on Wellpet & elsewhere makes me
want to change her to a natural diet as
I’m doing with our others.At this time,
I’m not ready to do a totally raw diet & would prefer to feed a natural dry with
extras.What diet do you recommend for
Thanks for your help. Pat Smart
Diet is indeed extremely impportant for the diabetic, and any change you make will likely effect her insulin requirements. I agree that w/d is not the highest quality commercial food you could be feeding, but because of the necessity of keeping the diet consistent, I would not try to switch to home-cooking. I would gradually try switching to a higher quality dry food such as that made by Wysong, and eventually add in fresh vegetables for additional nutrients. I also use a dietary suplement for Diabetics called Glucuril from Phytopharmica which contains chromium, bitter melon extract and other ingredients important for glucose metabolism.
