Your Diabetic Cat – Part 1

YourDiabeticCatWE ALL FEED —  OR HAVE FED — DRY FOOD TO OUR CATS ALLEGED TO BE ONE  OF THE WORST THINGS TO DO.

“Feline diabetes is NOT the natural fate of hundreds of thousands of pet cats world-wide. It is, rather, a human-created disease that is reaching epidemic proportions because of the highly artificial foods that we have been feeding our feline companions for the past few decades. Without the constant feeding of highly processed, high carbohydrate DRY foods, better suited to cattle than cats, adult-onset feline diabetes would be a rare disease, if it occured at all.” — Elizabeth Hodgkins DVM, JD,  More

TO CALCULATE CARBS — HERE IS A SIMPLE FORMULA

Add the following percentages:

  1. protein
  2. fat
  3. fiber
  4. ash
  5. moisture

Subtract from 100%

The number will = % of carbs in food. Naturally, the lower the better.

As always, check with your veterinarian about any questions you may have regarding your pet’s health. There are different schools of thought, theories and treatments.
