    My 13 Boston Terrier was diagnosed with pancreatitis which caused her to now be a diabetic.
    My vet has her on science diet prescription ID which is very expensive. My other dog 7 yr old bull terrier is healthy and is on blue buffalo lamb and brown rice.
    I have seen comments where blue buffalo is too rich and it’s fruit
    Ingredients adds to a higher sugar intake for dogs.
    I’m concerned my bull terrier will end up like my Boston terrier.
    My questions is, any suggestions of a dry food that can help both dogs?

    Thank you,
    Kathy

    Hi Kathy, which Hills I/d are you feeding…. the Hills I/d low fat GI Restore 7.4%-fat, protein-25.9% carbs-59.3 or the I/d Gastro 13.9%-fat Carbs-50.5% protein-26.3%
    You can feed a different food but read the fat% protein% & carb% on the Hills I/d that your feeding & pick another food with the same amount of fat% protein% & carbs% …. you don’t want your girl the have another attack…… also wet food is better for pancreatitis..
