Diet is critical for diabetics, always. Diet-related info for diabetic pets is gathered here.

Semi-moist food[1] for dogs and cats can contain a lot of simple carbohydrate sugars[2]. These could be problematic in diabetes regulation.

Dry food for cats is almost always high in carbohydrates (by necessity as part of the manufacturing process) and is therefore problematic in diabetic cats.

Because the ingredients and the composition of many pet foods can be subject to change, mostly because of their availability and cost factors, this can have an effect on the control of diabetes[3][4]. more information about Diet Solution Program]
