Homemade Food for Diabetic Dogs

Homemade food for diabetic dogs recipe

This homemade food for diabetic dogs 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 diabetic food 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.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup ground chicken
  • 1 cup dry brown rice
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped green beans
  • 1/2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. bone meal

Instructions

Boil water for the rice according to the instructions on the packaging. Add the coconut oil and salt to the water. Add the rice and cook for about 10 minutes or until the rice is done.

Add the carrots, green beans and bone meal to the rice and stir. Cover and allow the food to simmer for 10 more minutes. Once it is finished cooking, stir until well mixed and allow the food to cool.

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.
