Dear Anita,

Purina's diabetic food is 5.88 % fat, 38.25 % carbohydrate, 9.43% fiber. The amount of carbohydrate and fiber are just as important to slow down the release of sugar in the bloodstream. You will need to talk to your veterinarian about the best diet for YOUR dog. One needs to choose the diet based upon the patient.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
