Geraldine Ireland, ID 6/22/2011 5:22:08 AM I have just been to see an excellent homeopathic vet here. He recommends the raw food diet. He suggests 2% of the dog's weight, split into 30% chicken wings (glucosamine in the bone) 30% meat and the balance made up of meat and grated carrot. He also advises giving a raw egg daily and a good beef bone once or twice a week. We have just changed a diabetic dog onto it and she has reduced her blood sugar level 10 points in the first week. We had been feeding her one of the commercial diabetic foods. Since then, in one week, she has stopped constantly begging for food, reduced the amount of water she needed to drink and her coat and temperament are better.
