Product Details

If your cat's meow isn't quite the cat's meow, it may be time to take a closer look! Purina Veterinary Diets DM Dietetic Management Feline Formula Dry Food is a nutritionally balanced vet diet. Purina understands feline diabetes, which occurs when your cat cannot properly process or dispose of sugar. Insulin, produced in the pancreas, is the hormone that regulates sugar in cats as well as humans. A lack of it causes trouble in both. Purina Veterinary Diets DM Dietetic Management Feline Formula Dry food for cats helps reduce the fluctuation in your pet's glucose levels. Because you know your darling feline counts on you, choose Purina Veterinary Diets DM Dietetic Management Feline Formula Dry Food.

We have two cats and one is diabetic. They made a smooth transition from their former Science Diet food to Purina DM dry food. They seem to like it a lot and we've had no troubles feeding them this food. This food has a higher protein content than other types of food but it does not have additives to assist with hair balls[...]

Excellent Product!

Comments about Purina Veterinary Diets DM Dietetic Management Feline Formula Dry Food:

We started using DM when one of our cats was diagnosed with diabetes. A year later we are still loving the product. Our diabetic cat has lost weight while on this diet, which has allowed for smaller insulin doses. We feed both of our cats this formula because it closely mimics what a cat would eat in the wild. (High protein, low carb) We are very happy customers!

    For an older cat who won't touch DM wet food!

    Regardless of source, there's seem to be ongoing price fixing on Vet prescription diabetic kibble and wet food. Having a diabetic cat is expensive enough with insulin daily, much less having to overpay for it's food. How about giving us owners a bit of a break??

      Great dry food!!

      By Myselle

      from Chicago, IL

      Comments about Purina Veterinary Diets DM Dietetic Management Feline Formula Dry Food:

      Our vet prescribed Purina DM dry food for our diabetic cat four years ago when he was initially diagnosed. We feed him 1/3 can of Fancy Feast canned food 2x per day and leave the DM out all day for grazing. His diabetes has remained controlled and stable throughout the entire period of his diagnosis. While this product is expensive, for us, it is worth every penny. The downside of this product is that our other two non-diabetic cats have decided that they prefer this prescription diet over their regular dry food.
