Dog food for diabetic dogs?

HI My name is Tammy and I live in Israel. My dog (female) was diagnosed with diabetes. The vet said that I have to put her on a diet and give her only dog food for diabetic dogs. The only type that he told me is Hills for diabetic . My dog will not touch the dog food and I tried everything from putting little pieces of chicken or chicken soup on the dog food but she won’t touch it . She is losing weight and I wanted to know if you now of any other brand dog food for diabetic dogs you know of. My brother lives in the states so he can buy it for me and send it to me. Can you help me with this . Its urgent!!!Maybe the blue Buffalo Wilderness is okay I need a dog food low in fat with moderate fiber and low carbohydrate. and of course no sugar. I would be very thankfull if you could help me with this matter. She is a small breed she weighs 7 Kilo maybe less because of loss of weight . She will have a blood test in 2 weeks to see what her blood sugar is after she started the diet. Please help me help my dog.
