Do You Know All These Tips And Techniques To Safely Feed Your Diabetic Dog?


Diabetes Feeding Advice From
Experienced Diabetic Dog Owners

Feeding a diabetic dog need not become a problem.

Many Vets will advise the use of a prescription dog diabetes food, particularly initially to stabalize the diabetes, and while these products are excellent, they often cost more but worse still, pets often tire of of eating the same thing for each meal.

Relax! There are Easy solutions at hand.

Dear Diabetic Dog Owner,

Please do not fret or worry.


It often comes as a shock when your loved one is first diagnosed with diabetes and although you may be initially fearful at having to inject your dog with insulin every day, this is something all diabetic dog owners soon master.

Diet control often seems the easy part at first; Vets will usually recommend a special prescription diet and will have calculated amounts to feed in accordence with the insulin dose administered and everything works fine for a few months untildot dot dot

dot dot dotyour pet refuses to eat and you start wondering what you are doing wrong.


Problem Feeders

Relax, most diabetic dog owners come across the problem feeder syndrome at some time, where their pet seems to loose all interest in their diet and either eats only a small proportion or refuses to eat at all.

One of the symptoms of poor diabetes control is weight loss, even when the animal eats normally, so it is important to ensure your pet eats the right amount regularly and this can be tricky at times.

Diabetics should avoid certain foods and it is often the case where the foods they prefer are the ones they should not have; this can cause problems, particularly if you have more than one dog or your pet gets sneaky tit-bits they should not have in order to get them to eat.

About Us

We have five dogs, all Pomeranians, and when one of them was diagnosed with diabetes it turned our world upside down. Administering insulin injections was bad enough but just when we had established a nice routine, our beloved pet went off his food!
Pomeranian Dog

We knew very little about diabetes at that time; we did not even know dogs suffered from diabetes so it came as a big shock to us to discover one of our beloved dogs, our only male, was diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus back in 2003.
We began researching canine diabetes and became increasingly frustrated by the often conflicting nature of the information we uncovered.

Being a software author, I regarded setting up a website to help other diabetic dog owners avoid the mistakes we made a piece of cake; I had not considered the vast amount of conflicting and inaccurate information which is freely available. What should have taken 6 months, took over 3 years of research!


“I went onto Google to look up Dog diseases such as diabetes and renal failure, cushing syndrome etc and came across your website which I found to be extremely unique and helpful at the same time. I was waiting for a definite diagnosis for my dog before subscribing and was overwhelmed with your immediate response with the information I was so desperate to get hold of.

I did not really have an issue with the injections it was the "what if" questions that I needed answers to and your Diabetes Guide helped to allay a lot of my fears.

Once again Noel a big thank you for your assistance, research and support in kind. I will use the guide to educate my family and neighbours who will all have to look after Cooney at some stage. ”

Information and Misinformation

The Internet is a goldmine of information and you may be forgiven for thinking it is simple to get answers to questions on any topic — Wrong!

Medical advice and information is readliy available but practical "hands on" help can be difficult to locate, particularly if you do not know your subject matter.

Advice such as "Stop using food as a distraction before you give the injection. Give the injection first, followed by giving the food. In time he'll associate the injection with getting a reward." this may seem helpful but what if the dog does not eat after having been given insulin? This is equivalent to an insulin overdose and can lead to hyperglycima, shock, coma and even death.

And again, "Diabetic dogs can still have treats, but they can’t contain any sugar. Most cat treats don’t contain the problem sweeteners so you can give these as treats to your diabetic dogs." this is also misleading because there is no mention of fat content or the often problematic carbohydrates.

There are hundreds of thousands of articles on blogs and forums offering advice, and most by people don't even have a diabetic pet, but they feel they have to "air their opinions".

The initial diagnosis is only the beginning, and although your Vet will offer good advice, be aware that not everything they recommend is always essential and many give the impression that your dog must have a prescription diet.

The truth is dogs tire of the same thing for each meal and although it is nutritious and well ballanced, it is like trying to get children to eat something healthy which they do not like.

Feeding Diabetic Dogs

With such a variety of pet foods on the market you may think it relatively simple to find food suitable for dogs with diabetes. Unfortunately pet food manufacturers are not always consistent with their labeling and often use cereals which are high in carbohydrates as a "bulk filler".

The diet for a diabetic dog should be high in protein and fiber whilst being low in fats and carbohydrates, although complex carbohydrates are acceptable in moderation. See Glycemic Index below for more information on carbohydrates.

The advantage of commercial pet food is that the manufacturers have performed the necessary nutritional calculations for you to obtain a balanced diet for your pet but many diabetic dog owners make their own pet food and we have compiled a recipe book to help in creating meals your dog likes.

Canine Diabetes Recipe Book contains home made recipe ideas, all of which have been successfully used, and the recipes can be modified to suit your own pet.

Glycemic index

Glycemic index is a ranking system for carbohydrates based on their immediate effect on blood glucose levels. It compares carbohydrates in individual foods to give a numerical, index of post-meal glycemia. The concept was invented by Dr. David J. Jenkins and colleagues in 1981 at the University of Toronto.

Carbohydrates that break down rapidly during digestion have the highest glycemic indices. Such carbohydrates require less energy to be converted into glucose, which results in faster digestion and a quicker increase of blood glucose. Carbohydrates that break down slowly, releasing glucose gradually into the blood stream, have a low glycemic index.

A lower glycemic response equates to a lower insulin demand and better long-term blood glucose control.

Canine Diabetes Management Guide

For these reasons we produced a guide book which not only explains the medical aspects in an easy to understand way but also offers "hands on" practical advice to counter the unexpected problems that are likely to come your way.
Fundimental questions answered in the guide include:
  • What can I feed my diabetic dog and what should I avoid?
  • What special treats can I safely give my dog.
  • I gave my dog insulin as normal but now she is not eating. What can I do?.
  • How to store and handle insulin safely.
  • My dog sometimes flinches with the injection, how can I prevent this?.
  • Is there a way to cut costs without any loss of diabetes control?
Positive answers to these and many more...

The Guide Book spans 50 pages, so it is no "quick read", and because it is in electronic format (Portable Document Format suitable for all Operating Systems) it has a bookmaks index that enables you to jump back and forth instantly to the topics of interest with ease.

It walks you through the process, from the symptoms and first diagnosis to what will be expected of you, taking out the fear. Yes it can be scary at first, especially if you are the person nominated to teach someone else.

We have been through it, know the pitfalls and we have the solutions.

If the Canine Diabetes Management Guide had been around when we needed it, we would have saved time, money and anxiety.


" The guide is full of advice on how to control diabetes, as well as tips on how to avoid pitfalls. It also aims to take the fear out of the early days following a diagnosis by telling dog owners what they can expect. "

The Life of a diabetic dog


"This looked complicated at first.

I started reading and it gives all the technical terms my Vets did but that was not what I was after. Then I found the index on the side. I feel stupid now. Its all here in a way I can understand. I only got it because Toby is a fussy eater and... well an egg! So simple yet who would have thought it would work so well?

There is a lot of information in this guide, and now that I have found the bit I wanted (problem feeders) I have lots of tips - Toby worried me through not eating but now I know how to get him to eat, life is so much easier. I even have the time to read and digest the rest of the book and, it all makes sense, even to me - I guess I was feeling stressed before.

I have lots of printouts from websites, and brochures from Vets, but to get all this information and practical advice all in one book from people who love all their dogs is amazing. If you want it, go for it! We also shaved over $30 per month off our supplies bill, so this has paid for itself many times over, and that was a bonus. "

"My 12 yrs, maltese poodle was recently diagnosed with diabetes. I needed to know about feeding her pototato. My vet said it was ok to do so, but friends of mine have said diabetes people do not eat pototo at all. Thanks to your advice I now know why my dog's blood count shot up from 8 to 27 withing 4 days.  I gave her boiled potato twice She loves it so much that she ate my other dog's helping too.  A mistake I will never repeat."
