Rated 5 out of 5 by Brian Finally, real glucose control
My 12ish year old lab mix was recently diagnosed with diabetes mellitus. She started on regular insulin and i searched around to find her a diet i *thought* would keep her glucose levels in check. Well, simply reading ingredients isnt enough. It is also crucial to have the right amount and type of fiber in the diet. With other limited ingredient and potato free foods, her levels were still climbing into high 400s, even with 23 units of insulin. Low 200s were difficult to reach, and forget about getting below that.
After one week or so with the Hills W/D glucose management food, she recently tested back down near 200. That is with keeping all other variables relatively constant, and only switching her food source. And that was also accomplished with only 20 units of insulin.
At first, i was nervous about the high price and if my dog would like a food with 20% fiber. She LOVES it. she previously needed chicken or something added to her food to make it more enticing, but this stuff she gobbles up without hesitation. The price is well worth the peace of mind that comes with a manageable glucose level. Best decision in my dog's diabetes care was to invest in this food. If you have trouble getting glucose levels to safe and healthy ranges, try this food first before you throw money away on increasing insulin doses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FrankP Food for for diabetic dog
Being newly diagnosed with diabetes, Georgi is now restricted in his eating. The dry kibble as prescribed by his vet is mixed with a little W/D canned and makes the kibble much more palatable. He is feeling much better and loosing a little weight. When we needed quick replenishment of his food and the vet indicated they would need to order it and it would take at least a week, we went to chewey and received our order in 3 days.

This is the best food if you are serious about your dog losing weight. They don't seem hungry and it really works. I feed less than the recommended amount, so experiment and your dog will lose weight!
