I think it’s easier for human diabetics to make sound nutritional choices for themselves than for their diabetic pets. Eating a colorful salad is clearly a better choice than eating a greasy burger on a thick white bun. Eating broccoli is clearly a better choice than having a cupcake. You can expect simple carbs like white […]
I often get questions about raw diets both in my general practice and from my ADW readers. I received another email today about raw diet for a diabetic pet and figured it's time I write a newsletter on the subject.
One of the most common questions I get is about feeding diabetic pets. Part of this is common sense, but let's chat about the big picture. And the big picture isn't quite the same for dogs as it is for cats.

I love getting emails from our readers. Sometimes they are so good I share them. Let’s jump right into two recent email interactions I’ve had as you may have had similar questions about underweight diabetic dogs or test strip storage.
Do you have specific diet recommendations for thin diabetic dogs? I’ve read a few of your articles […]
