    Yes there is, my mom had the same problem! Gravy granules such as Bisto and OXO cubes work well and dogs love it! Just dilute it in hot water until its nice a thick, stir it in the dog food and he/she will love it. It worked for Brucey, hopefully it works for you smile

    Make sure you check with your vet before you feed or add anything to a diabetics diet!!! I am a CVT (vet tech) and have a diabetic of my own. We actually switched to a raw diet (they also have freeze dried raw diets too) which is high in protein and low in the carbs (which is what you want). It has been very easy to regulate her blood sugar and and keep her weight in the right range. I feed Natures Variety and Stella & Chewy's (they make a great freeze dried raw diet great for travel). Good Luck!

    Just make gravey from your grease from your frying pans. Like gradmothers make. add a tad of water, boil it, simmer and then add in some corn starch or flour and stir. The flavor will be wonderful and it won't have all that salt. smile

    limit ehe sugar,fat,and dry food. Otherwise, focus on the ingredient of the food.

    Try chicken broth. Not sure why you need a gravy though.
