Where can I find some very good recipes for a small dog with diabetes who is a very picky eater? Would be interested in both book and website recommendations.

(preferably simple/few ingredients/not a ton of prep time)
Hello, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I have been a veterinary nurse for 26 years.Thank you for allowing me to assist you today.

The first thing I would have to recommend is consulting with a Veterinary Nutritionist so they can help you design a diet specific to your little ones needs. You can do this online or in person both will consult with your vet to get a full medical history.
Here is a good one for online consults. Link

Below are a few links to good sites with easy to prepare diets.
Link 1
Link 2

Here is a great site that discuss the nutritional needs of a diabetic pet.

Home-Prepared Dog & Cat Diets by Donald R. Strombeck, DVM, a great book.

I would also check out the Good food cook book Link

I hope this helps. Please reply back if you have additional questions or concerns and I will be happy to continue.
