Our meals are a great option for diabetic dogs. The fibre in our recipes comes from gently cooked lentils, veg, and flaxseed, not grains. These are complex carbohydrates and have a low glycemic index, which means they provide a constant low level of blood sugar rather than large spikes - just what your diabetic dog needs.
All of our recipes are suitable for this condition - they contain a good amount of fibre which means they're extra gentle on a sensitive digestion. We'll also pre-portion your dog's food into daily servings so they'll be getting exactly what they need each day. Regular mealtimes are very helpful in managing a dog's insulin levels, so we'd recommend feeding them at the same times every day.
Bear in mind that a change in your diabetic dog's diet can cause some blood glucose fluctuations and you may notice their diabetes seems a little less controlled as a result. For this reason, it's super important to introduce the food nice and slowly and keep your vet informed about the change in diet. Most dogs will usually stabilise within a week or so after starting to eat Butternut.
