Bad eating routine could and do bring the main cause of diabetes in people and this is the same case with cats and dogs that are fed with high carbs, canned or dry food.
Think of the wolf, hiding in the dark areas, salivating and ravenous, watching the flock of woolly, plump sheep, while they munch happily at the feed trough. The wolf gets closer, the sheep, feeling danger, bolt away, and rather than giving run after, the wolf saunters to the feed trough and scarfs down the contents!
Absurd? Obviously it is! Why, then, do we talk about giving grains to canines?
The dog food businesses that have set themselves up as food experts have done an excellent disservice to dogs by incorporating large amount of grains to canned and dry products that they claim is ‘dog food’. They do not pay too much attention on quality diabetic dog food and all they care about are their incomes and profits.
Dog diabetes is a condition of nutritional excess. It generally looks like a consequence of caregivers giving wrong ‘foods’ to the purpose of obesity. It’s the most typical hormonal condition present in dogs and, in the past, its appearance is related to the appearance of industrial pet foods.
The signs and symptoms of dog diabetes are drinking more water, weight loss, urinating more frequently, and the outcomes could be poor hair and skin coat, liver condition, nausea, weakness in the legs, blindness and kidney disease. Diabetes in dogs is a severe illness, and really should be treated as such.
Diabetes evolves as the dog’s body is not able to break up and make use of glucose adequately. Sugar shows up in the urine, which can cause the dog to urinate a lot more, leading to him to drink more water. The pancreas is called upon to produce the hormone called insulin, so when a dog is fed a diet that’s rich in carbs, the pancreas cannot keep up. Carbs turn to sugars inside the intestinal tract, and our dogs don’t have the capability to cope with this level of sugar.
The wolf, with its wild prey diet plan, doesn’t endure the effects of the grain-based diet. Because prey animals are plentiful, the wolf will keep a proper weight, and won’t develop the symptoms, so common in our pet population.
The very best precautionary measure is a meat-based diet that doesn’t include grains, preservatives or fillers.
