Dog With Diabetes

I received a call today from a lady asking if our food would be good for a dog with diabetes. I went on to explain to her that our food would be beneficial because of its naturally low sugar content and high animal protein content. Compared to some of the grain free diets that use tapioca or sweet potato, Nature’s Logic is as low or lower in sugars. Dry kibble has to have some kind of starch binder to hold the kibble together. We chose Millet because it is gluten free, full of complex B vitamins, hypo-allergenic, is a good source of fiber and is lower in sugar than tapioca or potato used in grain free diets.

Mixing our high meat content based canned food with the kibble would also be beneficial because it contains 1% carbs. This will also help an overweight dog loose those extra pounds. One of the leading causes of diabetes is being overweight. You should never free feed your dog. Make sure you portion feed your pet to assure they don’t over-eat. If you give your dog treats, it’s best to reduce the regular meal based on the amount of treats they receive. For more information on Nature's Logic foods, please visit http://www.natureslogic.com/.
