Product description

A complete dry food for adult dogs suffering from diabetes mellitus. To be used in conjunction with insulin therapy. With appropriate levels of starch, high protein content and rich in antioxidants.

General information:

  • Please seek your vet's advice before using this food or extending the feeding period.
  • When feeding your dog with a veterinary diet you should consult your vet regularly for check-ups.
  • If your dog's health deteriorates please seek veterinary advice immediately.
Royal Canin Veterinary Canine - Diabetic DS 37 is a complete dry food for diabetic dogs over 1 year of age. Diabetes is a common canine health condition that should be immediately treated once the first symptoms appear.

Typical early symptoms of diabetes in dogs include thirstiness, frequent urination, and an increased appetite combined with weight loss. Although diabetes is a serious diagnosis, it can often be effectively treated with a combination of insulin therapy and a specialist diet, such as Royal Canin Veterinary - Diabetic DS 37. This dietetic dry dog food features a carefully developed recipe that helps to control your dog's blood sugar. It also boasts a reduced starch content to promote healthy weight loss, as well as high levels of protein to support the maintenance of muscle mass. Weight loss support is important for diabetic dogs as they can be at risk of obesity.

Canine diabetes mellitus can cause oxidative stress, which may in turn lead to chronic complications. Royal Canin Veterinary Canine - Diabetic DS 37 dry dog food is rich in antioxidants to help combat this. At the same time, the synergistic antioxidant complex composed of vitamin C, vitamin E, lutein and taurine helps to neutralise free radicals and promotes active cell protection.

Recommended for (indications):

  • Diabetes mellitus
Not recommended for (contraindications):
  • Pregnant and lactating bitches
  • Puppies
Please note: Feeding this food generally improves canine insulin sensitivity. When initiating this diet, it is highly recommended to monitor blood glucose so that your dog's insulin dosage can be adjusted.

 

Key benefits:

  • Glucomodulation: Specific formula to support the management of postprandial blood glucose in diabetic dogs.
  • High protein levels: High protein content for the maintenance of muscle mass, which is essential in overweight diabetic dogs.
  • Low starch levels: Reduced-starch formula.
  • Antioxidant complex: A synergistic complex of antioxidants to help neutralise free radicals.
Duration of treatment:
Royal Canin Veterinary - Diabetic should be fed throughout your dog's lifetime.

Further information:
Diabetes mellitus promotes oxidative stress, which in turn contributes to the development of diabetes-associated chronic complications (Opara 2002). A high level of antioxidants helps combat this.

Diabetes stabilised
My 9 year old dog's weight and diabetes have stabilised since using this kibble. She weights a lot less and her glycemic level is much steadier now. Having tried other brands, I compared the ingredients etc and I thoroughly recommend this one.

Excellent food
With a diabetic dog it is hard to find the right dog food, it is really difficult. I personally found this one is very very good, he eats it happily and we've had no health problems! Great, would recommend!

Recommendable
The vet recommended I try a different brand for diabetic dogs, but my dog Maggie wouldn't eat it so we were advised to try this one instead. Maggie is delighted with this food and we'll continue to use it. We love it, and bitiba gives us great service. I'll buy from them again.

My little dog had suffered from diabeted mellitus for about 3 years and I must say that this food, along with her daily insulin, are a sure-fire way to keep her blood sugar levels stable. They seem to be very appetizing and she eats without any issues. Recommended!

Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Diabetic
Hi I found Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Diabetic great for the condition of my dog. I was skeptical at first but I had to admit there were some real improvements. This is the first time I've bought from bitiba and it was great.
