My dog has Diabetes & Cushings, and the nutritionist recommended Purina Pro Plan DCO. I am not happy w/ this as it’s 1st ing. is corn, beet pulp ,poultry by-products, corn gluten meal, beef tallow.etc.
Everything I have read says the ist. ing. should be real meat, no non-specific by products, and whole veg. & fruits. What would be a good brand and what have other people used.
I have never had a dog with diabetes, and am not a nutritional expert, but I suggest something low in carbs; such as: Solid gold Barking at the Moon, or Evo Turkey and Chicken; or Nature’s Variety Instinct Chicken.
Read the ingredients for Zignature Zssentials multi protein formula, on Chewy.com. It also lists what it doesn’t contain. Purina should be banned, my opinion, of course.
Pro Plan DCO is specifically formulated by nutritionists for canine patients with diabetes. It is a fine choice. If you do not want to use this food, I would suggest working with a nutritionist to formulate a homecooked diet for a diabetic dog.
