I just found out that my greyhound might have low blood sugar. Not diabetic The bloodwork showed 57. I'm taking him in Monday for another test but in the meantime I'm using my meter to register over the weekend. Yesterday he registered 97 but today it was 54.

Can anyone tell me anything more about this. I'm diabetic but this is different

Ernie Ward, DVM responded:
Low blood sugar or hypoglycemia can have many potential causes. It is important to determine if this is a hormonal disorder, diet, genetic or organ function (esp liver) issue. I'm sure your vet will get to the bottom of the problem and help your baby.

Let us know what you find out!
