How do diabetic dog treats differ from regular treats?
The main difference between these and other types of dog treats lies in how they’re made and what they contain—and how those formulations and ingredients interact with your dog’s system.
“[They] have lower carb loads and higher fiber or protein. The fiber takes time to break down in the system so the dog doesn’t get a big rush of carbohydrates,” says Carlson. “Diabetic treats maintain blood sugar levels, keeping them stable with filling fiber and protein.”
