The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) is an American organisation and you would have to go to their website to find out information from them. They have no jurisdiction over foods sold in the UK, which is where we are based.

Is the W/D for dog with diabetes please

10th Feb 2015
Chris Law

my dog has been diagnosed with diabetes & to buy from the vet is very expensive

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

High fibre diets like this are commonly used to help with the treatment of diabetes in dogs. You should make sure your vet knows what diet you are using and you follow all other instructions. Hills r/d is used for overweight dogs with diabetes and w/d is used for dogs of healthy weight with diabetes. There are other (eg. high protein) diets which can also be used as an alternative, but it is best to use whatever your vet advises.
