Tulip, female, 10 year old diabetic pug mix
Tulip’s owner was struggling to regulate her dog’s blood sugar levels and had been making a homemade diet that was not complete and balanced. Her owner is a health conscious person and in the human nutrition field so she really wanted to take Tulip’s nutrition seriously and to the next level after Tulip was diagnosed with diabetes. I formulated a diet for Tulip with the right macronutrients in order to stabilize her blood sugar and reduce postprandial glucose spiking. This diet focused on the right amount of fiber to help with stabilizing blood glucose and lowering fat while being complete and balanced. Within a few weeks, Tulip has been doing fabulous and was able to lower her insulin dose significantly.
