My cat has diabetes. Can I feed Weruva?

Diabetes is caused by the body’s inability to produce the requisite insulin to balance blood sugar levels. Carbohydrates are made of sugars, and keeping carbohydrate intake in check helps with diabetes. Carbohydrates are primarily found in dry kibble foods, as dry kibble cannot be made without carbohydrates. Eliminating dry kibble is a great step toward alleviating the effects of diabetes.

Calories for people and pets come from three places: protein, fat and carbohydrates. Cats are “obligate carnivores” which means they must eat meat. The calories in meat are protein- and fat-based with little to zero carbs. Protein and fat are the proper fuel for cats; carbohydrates are not metabolically necessary.

All of Weruva’s formulas were formulated with the carnivore diet in mind, ranging from 1-3% carbohydrates. Those formulas without veggies, such as Paw Lickin’ Chicken, Mack & Jack, Mideast Feast and Asian Fusion, contain the least proportion of carbohydrates.
