This diabetic dog home cooked diet can help your ailing pooch, but it’s best to consult your veterinarian about the appropriate serving size for you dog. They will also help you evaluate this recipe to make sure it will meet your pet’s unique nutritional needs. If necessary, they will assist you in choosing the best supplements and/or multivitamins to add.


  • 1 cup cooked pasta
  • 1.25 cups ground chicken
  • 1/2 tsp. coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. bone meal


Brown the ground chicken in the coconut oil. You can steam the carrots if you think your dog will find them more appealing. My dogs don’t have a problem eating raw carrots, so I don’t bother steaming them.

Mix the browned chicken, cooked pasta and carrots in a large mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until thoroughly combined.

I recommend feeding about 1/2 cup of food for every 20-25 pounds of body weight. This is just a guideline. Some dogs, like working dogs and very active breeds, will need more calories than this. Lazier pets and senior dogs may not need as many.
