An increase in fiber, which many of us do for our diabetic dogs, helps with less bowel issues, and colitis, etc. The good bacteria takes over the bad.

My dog used to get bouts of bowel inflammation, once he became diabetic and I fed him more fiber, he's never got it again.

And pumpkin is also great for digestion. I prefer it over a dairy product for a dog. Also has betacarotene for eye health.
Riley, 8 yr. old maltipoo, 25 lbs., diagnosed Feb 2017, taking thyroid meds, had pancreatitis and DKA mid March, eating Wellness Senior formula can food. NPH dosage now at 9.0 units Humulin N. Adding either pumpkin, spinach, blueberries, yams, or green beans to his food. Also omega-3 oil.
