Embrace Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
Fresh fruits and vegetables make great snacks or meal toppers without packing on calories, says Morgan. “The natural sugars in fruits and vegetables do not cause blood sugar spikes,” she says. “If dry kibble is a large part of a dog’s diet, add a topper of ground, gently cooked green vegetables like broccoli, kale, dandelion greens, or collards.”
These ingredients will help boost the food’s fiber content, which can help regulate blood sugar fluctuations, Morgan says.
Make sure to consult your veterinarian before adding any fruits or vegetables or making any significant changes to your dog’s diet.
