Use these diabetic dog treats recipes for your diabetic dog, and she will be able to enjoy delicious dog treats again!

Some of the recipes call for unbleached flour. Since a diabetic dog diet should have whole grains whenever possible, simply substitute oat flour, whole wheat flour or barley flour for the unbleached flour in the recipe.

If you substitute whole grain flour for the unbleached flour, the dough will be stickier. If the recipe tells you to roll the dough, sprinkle the dough with flour, place it between two sheets of parchment paper, and you’re good to go…

In general, you’ll want to choose ingredients for your homemade dog treats that are low-glycemic. Carbohydrates should be complex, and you should avoid using sugars, including artificial sweeteners and healthy sugars like blackstrap molasses.

Diabetic dogs should have lots of fiber in their diets, because fiber slows down digestion and helps keep blood sugars balanced.

Here’s a list of healthy dog treat ingredients that you can include in your diabetic dog treats recipes:

  • Whole grain flours – White flour tends to be digested quickly, and it lacks the nutrition that your dog needs. Choose whole wheat, barley or rye flour over unbleached white flour.
  • Meat and fish
  • Eggs
  • Oatmeal or oat flour
  • Chicken broth
  • Cornmeal
  • Buttermilk
  • Raw seeds like sesame seeds or sunflower seeds
  • Bran for roughage – oat or whole wheat
  • Brewers’ yeast – aids in balancing blood glucose
  • Beans – complex carbs that can actually reduce the need for insulin medications. They stabilize blood sugars.
  • Peanut butter – keeps blood sugar under control and the fat makes your dog feel satisfied and not hungry
  • Brown rice and brown rice flour
  • Pumpkin – increases the level of insulin in the blood and decreases blood sugar
  • Carrots – Recent studies (University of Minnesota) have shown that carrots may actually prevent diabetes.
  • Unsweetened applesauce
  • Apples
  • Flaxseeds
  • Cinnamon – increases metabolism, helps keep blood sugar under control after meals.

While you do have to be careful when you make home-made dog treats for your diabetic dog, as you can see, you do have quite a few choices for ingredients.

And you’ll find that, if you choose healthy diabetic dog treats recipes, your dog’s diabetes will be easier to keep under control.
