The Taste of the Wild product line includes five canned dog foods

I have an senior diabetic dog (insulin dependent) and have been using the vet recommend food. I have been doing lots of research recently and found my current dog food is rated poorly nearly everywhere. My family and dog-people friends all use Taste of the Wild and have been trying to get us to switch over. We know it would mean adjusting her insulin because of the carbs/protein ratio, but I was wondering if anyone here knows of any reason this food should not be used for diabetics. Or if changing foods can be a big strain on a diabetic’s system. Thanks!

When changing to Taste of the Wild, we recommend making a gradual transition over 7-10 days to help avoid possible digestive upset in sensitive pets. Add a small amount of new food to your dog’s previous diet, gradually increasing the new and decreasing the previous diet until the transition is complete.

I agree but there is a purina pro plan sensitive skin and stomach which has no active ingredients. I’m going to give it a try before going to a dermatologist. My dogs skin is getting really bad. Very itchy and red. I hope it helps. I had her on purina pro plan before switching to taste of the wild and blue buffalo. I know taste of the wild is really good but I think different foods effect dogs differently. What may work for one dog may not work for another.
