If you've followed my blog for awhile, you know that my dogs are my life. They are my best friends and yes, I even love them like family.
Sister, my red weenie, is in trouble. I need your help. She has become diabetic. She has been on insulin for a month now, but I've yet to get her regulated. She won't eat the dog diabetic food.
The Hill's Science Diabetic food comes in hard and soft canned. She refuses the hard and while she ate the canned at first, she now won't eat it. Diabetic dog food requires fiber (both soluble and insoluble) and vegetables and meat in the right percentages. Perfect, yet she won't eat it. And, I'm not going to starve her to make her eat it as she has already lost half her weight and looks skeletal. I already have to lay down on her on the bed to give her her shot because she jumps and pulls away when I try to give it to her.
Do any of you have recipes I could make at home for diabetic dog food? I looked up some on the internet, but am unsure about them being sound and the right proportions. Please let me know if you have recipes or know of someone who does. I'm worried sick about her. She's been so sick, I need to get her on the road to recovery fast. She's always been the ornery one, and now, more so. She loves eating just boiled chicken, but I need to get her eating the other stuff too.
I've owned over 15 dogs in my lifetime and never had one with diabetes. It is killing me. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
