Homemade recipe for a dog with diabetes step by step
To begin we must look for all the ingredients of this diet for dogs with diabetes:
- Integral rice
- Lean meat (skinless chicken, turkey, or beef)

- 0% fat yogurt
1. Cook the brown rice
We will start by preparing the rice. Being integral needs more water than normal rice. If we normally used two cups of water for one of rice; with the integral, we will need three of water.
- Trick: to soften the rice, soak it in cold water for an hour. What we achieve with this is that the water already penetrates the grain.
Bring the rice to a boil. As soon as the water comes to a boil, lower the temperature to simmer. Remember that you must cook it with the lid of the saucepan on. Brown rice also takes longer to cook, estimate about 40 minutes.
2. Cook the meat
The first thing is cut the meat into small pieces. If your dog is very small, you also have the option to nibble it. Sauté the meat in a pan until you see that it is well browned. If there is fat that you can remove, feel free to do so.
3. Carrots and green beans
The we will wash well and cut them also in pieces. In this case, we are going to leave the vegetables raw since if we cook them they will lose part of their nutrients. Even so, if your dog is not used to it, you can put them to boil next to the rice.
4. Combine all the ingredients and don't forget to add the yogurt.
