    Question10yo with Diabetes

    Hi, I have been a member since we got our 2 labs. Over the years my yellow who is now 10 (will be 11 in Dec) came down with Diabetes about 3 years ago. We've gotten it regulated but the cost of the Prescription diet w/d dry has become too much. We were thinking of mixing it with some other dry that is less expensive. I know from reading on here the Science Diet/Hills/ Presc Diet isn't the greatest. The Diabetes forum I've read through and it seems they all use the W/D. Does anyone use something I can find at Pet Supplies Plus, PetSmart etc?
    I've heard of Orijen and Nutrisca but they are expensive as well.

    What's the best Diabetic dog food at a reasonable price??? We buy the ~28lb bag.

    Thank you!

    Hey there! I replied to your message but wanted to put it here too. My dog, diagnosed 5.5 years ago, eats Wellness CORE plus 1.5 cups of green beans 2x a day. I think there are quite a few people on the K9 diabetes forum who don't use prescription food.

    If you make a change, do it slowly. You may have to revise the amount of insulin you use too.

    Thanks. We mixed the Diamond Naturals lamb and rice which we have been using with both our dogs since they were pups and a heaping tablespoon of wet iams chicken and rice or lamb and rice or the equivalent. She still gets happy for dinner!
