Please refrain from commenting unless you have read the directions and full intent of the recipe and have a firm grasp of canine diabetes and insulin dependent dogs. COMMENT on COMMENTS: This mixture is ADDED to prescription dog food diet as stated in the directions. It is not meant to replace dog food. It was developed by our VETERINARIAN and NUTRITIONIST as an additive to the prescription food that is not specifically formulated for a diabetic. It makes NUMEROUS servings - it is not meant for a whole meal!!!!!!Your dog has been diagnosed with diabetes; you are scared, frustrated and overwhelmed. I can relate. If your faithful pet has been in the hospital with Ketoacidosis and has just returned home you may find yourself frantic as your pet refuses to eat. The refusal to eat is normal, they just don't feel good. If you cannot get your pet to eat please DO NOT administer insulin. Your pet needs to be enticed to eat, try feeding from your hand. The prescription food may be another problem. Pets usually hate it and it really is not the healthiest food. Follow the guidelines below (along with your vet) to come up with a meal and vitamin therapy plan to fit your dog’s new needs. The vitamins mentioned are particularly needed for diabetics, there are certainly more vitamins than listed in the food source. This meal plan was designed by a NUTRITIONIST and VETERINARIAN for a 90 pound DIABETIC dog, if your dog is smaller you will have to decrease the vitamins and food allotment by weight. Feel free to zmail me with any questions or for more information. This meal plan is designed for dogs RECEIVING INSULIN along with its meals TWICE a day. My dog’s insulin requirements drastically reduced and he is active, beautiful, happy and healthy! Please check blood regularly when switching as you pets insulin requirements may drop as well. Good Luck! You can do it! We are on year three!!! *********** UPDATE: Sadly, Droog went to the rainbow bridge this year. He lived with diabetes for the last four years of his life and left us 4 days before his 16th birthday. Droog was a Chocolate Lab whose smile could light up a room and had an amazing propensity to heal heartache. We miss him very much, but diabetes did not end his life, age did... and he lived a full and happy life and touched the hearts of many.
