March Tip

Does your dog or cat have diabetes? Have you looked at the ingredients before buying them food or treats?  Everyone seems to be well educated on Gluten Free and Grain Free foods.  What about diabetes? 

There are some ingredients that are in their food that might be deceiving.  Do you know potatoes turn into carbs and then turn into sugar?  Your diabetic pet shouldn't be eating potatoes then in their diet since it could spike their sugar levels.  We have some foods here that have very little if any carbs or sugar in their food just for diabetic pets. 

Sweet Potatoe and Tapioca is another high glycemic marker according to the National Glycemic Institute. Again your pets diet shouldn't have high glycemic markers in their food that turn to sugar. It is making your pets sick.  Your pet deserves to feel good again! It is as simple as changing their food.  It is possible this could help extend their quantity and quality of life. 

The low glycemic markers are meat, fish, eggs, avocado, most vegetables. These are ok to have in your pets diet.
