Default Putting Your Dog On A Diabetic Dog Food Diet

Like humans, dogs too get diabetes. When a dog has diabetes, the best
way to keep it in control is by giving it diabetic dog food, which is
low in sugar and carbohydrates. Apart from controlling the amount of
sugar in a diabetic dog's food, the amount of food and the frequency
in which they are fed also needs to be monitored. The general
recommendation is that your diabetic dog should be fed smaller meals
twice or thrice a day instead of a single large meal. This is because
blood sugar levels can be stabilized by smaller meals, whereas a
single large meal results in a high insulin spike, and then for it to
drop down in 12 hours. When blood sugar plummets too low, it results
in hypoglycemia, which is a series condition.
So what diabetic dog food should you give your dog? Here are a few
recommendations that will assist in controlling the diabetic condition
of your dog:
Shun Foods That Have SugarMost dog owners have very little idea about
the amounts of carbohydrates and sugar contained in commercial dog
food. Carbohydrates are considered a form of sugar because they are
metabolized into glucose by the body. Both soft-moist dog food and dry
dog food are considered culprits. If you must feed your dog
commercially manufactured dog food, it is better to give them a good
quality canned food. It is important to check the ingredients, which
are printed on the label....
