Animals can get diabetes just like humans and there are some great ways to prevent and help animals stay healthy who are living with diabetes.
Tips to help prevent diabetes in animals
Feed a grain-free, non-processed diet. That means stay away from all grains including rice. Look into a raw, cooked or dehydrated diet.
Avoid unnecessary vaccination and medications and chemical based topicals when possible. These can weaken the immune system.
Consider any supplements you may be giving to your animal, where they are from and what they contain.
Prevention is always better than cure so do follow our basic steps to minimize the risk. The diet is crucial to your animal being and staying healthy and here are some tips to help treat diabetes:
A raw or a cooked diet is preferred over a dehydrated diet, so do stay away from processed and grain based foods.
To know exactly what is best for your animal, use a simple energy technique called muscle testing to find out precisely what your animal needs.
Just because a diabetes diet suggests chicken, this does not mean this is the right protein for your animal so you need to muscle test first. Check your treats as they may well contain grains and sugars.
Organize frequent chiropractic adjustments as these can help their body stay in balance. Work with your holistic vet to help your diabetic animal and explore your options.
If your animal has diabetes and is on insulin, it may not be able to discontinue the insulin but with changes the amount may be able to be reduced.
Overall, your goal is to have a happier and healthier animal by looking at what you can do to help them on all levels, which includes prevention and treatment.
