My 12 yr old Rott mix dog Harley, who has never had health problems, was diagnosed with diabetes last July and almost died...he lost 20 pounds seemingly overnite and he now has to have shots of insulin every 12 hrs and likely won't live a lot longer. I can't say for certain but I feel that commercial dog food somehow contributed to his illness, eventho he got some of the better rated, more expensive stuff most of his life. He was always a picky eater but now he's ill he's even worse. I found this recipe soon after and started making it, freezing baggie portions. HE LOVES IT! His blood glucose level improved and he started gaining weight! I lost this recipe when I moved a few weeks ago and his glucose jumped dangerously high and he lost weight because I've had to coerce him with expensive kibbles and canned foods, scrambled eggs, cottage cheese, whatever, but he is not interested. I'm so glad I found this again and I'm going to start feeding it again tomorrow! He always has a bucket of fresh water and a bowl of good quality kibbles available as well. It's more trouble than opening a can of food etc but I feel it is SO much better for him and he is worth the effort.
