Making a homemade diet for your 2 diabetic canines is quite easy and most pet owners also find it to be very cost effective.
The amount of food they eat daily will remain the same.
To prepare your dogs meal: make 1/3 of the diet lean protein like chicken, turkey, beef, fish or eggs, the second third is long acting carbohydrates such as rice, potatoes, pasta or oatmeal and the final 1/3 is fresh vegetables including broccoli, green beans, peas and carrots.
You can cook the ingredients any way you prefer, mix them together, then add 1/2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil which enhances the smell and taste and provides a great source of essential omega-3 fatty acids, then finally season up the meal so it smells good.
The top 3 flavors most dogs like are barbecue sauce, pasta sauce and low sodium Tamari Sauce.
Balance out the meals with a reputable antioxidant-vitamin-mineral supplement.
We have had great luck with our canine diabetic patients using this protocol.
