Hypoglocemia in Diabetic Dogs

Zekes blood sugar continues to be low when the vet checks him.  I finally figured out the problem is that Zekes appetite is reduced lately, he is not tearing through his food like a shark like he has done in the past.  He has been finicky with food in the past but he is more finicky than usual and sometimes not finishing his food entirely like he previously.   So far the vet has not identified a reason for it.  She runs a blood panel about every 3 or 4 months and for the most part everything is normal however on the tests done in Feb. Zeke is showing slight signs of kidney damage.

With a dog with diabetes you have to be very careful to reduce their insulin if they eat less than usual.   Zekes' vet has been reduced to 10 units of NPH in the am and 10 in the evening.
