Best foods for hypoglycemic dog (insulinoma)?

My dog was recently diagnosed hypoglycemic due to an insulinoma and she had her second seizure early this morning. I've been trying to feed her regularly throughout the day but I think I missed her late-night meal last night.

The vet is not in the office today, and my dog is doing fine now, but what are some good foods to feed a hypoglycemic dog? I assume chicken for protein, but what else? Thanks.

A few of our dogs have mild low-blood sugar issues, but they get bedtime and treats and other snacks that help.

Since your dog has severe issues, I would suggest probably what your vet has, at least four meals a day. They don't have to be big but they should be high quality, with protein, fat and carbohydrates but not sugars or corn. Feeding sugary foods can make their blood sugar rise and than crash (I should know since I have low-blood sugar myself). : )


Hope this helps!
