We hear from humans almost every day about how our food has made their pups healthier and happier (and exponentially more excited about mealtime). While our recipes are AAFCO-compliant and great for all dogs, diabetic dogs may have special requirements that your veterinarian can tell you more about, so be sure to consult them first.
Along with proper insulin therapy, the most important part of feeding a diabetic dog is consistency: The meals should be similar in nutrient content and fed on a schedule in coordination with the insulin schedule. Dogs should be kept at a healthy weight, too. Ollie meals fulfill the basic requirements for diabetic dogs, as they have good levels of soluble fiber (through ingredients like pumpkin and peas). And while there is no established glycemic index for dogs, our diets are high in protein and low in those simple carbohydrates believed to cause spikes in blood glucose.
