He might have diabetes. Sugar diabetes, more specifically known as canine diabetes, is a common disease to dogs. It is a hormonal disorder that affects dogs of ages 5 to 9. Some species like German Shepherd, Poodles, Keeshonden and Golden Retrievers register the highest incidence of this disease. Obese dogs also stand a greater risk of being diabetic. The ratio of female to male infected with the disease is 3:1. This book addresses the most conspicuous symptoms of diabetes in dogs, the main causes, and how to effectively treat it.

Results For - Hypoglycemia: Low Blood Sugar In Dogs

A couple of days ago I thought my Yorkie puppy was going to die. He was playing around happily. All of a sudden he stopped and it seemed he hurt a paw. Seconds after he was unable to walk. He couldn't held his head up. His eyes were closing. His muscle tone was gone and his eyes became white. It was late at night. My best idea was calling the breeder. She helped me to save him giving him honey till he started recovering. Believe it or not, four hours later he was running around happily as if nothing happened. He is fine now. I had no idea this was a very common issue among puppies, especially when they become hyperactive and play lots, as they can't control their sugar levels yet as an adult does. You can prevent it by giving them some extra glucose when they are playing too much. I hope this information is helpful for you in case you need it sometime. 1. (Source: petmd) Hypoglycemia (critically low levels of sugar in the blood) is often linked to diabetes and an overdose of insulin. The blood sugar, or glucose, is a main energy of source in an animal's body, so a low amount will result in a severe decrease in energy levels, possibly to the point of loss of consciousness.

    > Your Dog's Signs of Low Blood Sugar

    I'm putting together a web page on hypoglycemia.
    If your dog has ever experienced low blood sugar, anything from slightly low to seizures, I'd very much appreciate it if you could post describing what signs your dog gave that made you suspect low blood sugar.
    Also, if the hypoglycemia was fairly severe, it would help if you could describe the early signs if there were any, as well as whatever behavior changes s/he went through before recovering, including seizures.
    Thanks!! :)

    Chris has never had an episode of severe low blood sugar. I think the lowest BG we have ever measured was in the 40s and he has never had seizures (knock on wood).
    His first sign of low blood sugar is being shaky and weak. If he's on a walk, he slows to a crawl. Sometimes he can be restless.
    For him, exercise and vet visits are prime times for him to go low. His blood sugar drops from anxiety, excitement, and exercise.

    When we were initially getting Lucky regulated on the old Lilly pork Lente insulin, he registered a 35. This was the only time he got syrup (2 cc's of Mrs. Butterworth in a syringe under his tongue). (And a hamburger too, after that! :) ) The only outward signs of his being low were the whites of his eyes had become very bloodshot.
    We had been checking his eyes because we'd discovered that when he was high, his eyes were bloodshot. The color of the red we saw when he was high was much brighter than the time he was low--that was a much darker shade of red. When he was in good control--not one way or another, the whites of his eyes would be without any bloodshot at all.
    When I discovered this about him, I'd say to John when we'd come in for testing whether I thought he was high or that I thought we'd all be happy with the test this time. John would have a look at his eyes and then take the test. Lucky's eyes told the tale before the test did. John then put this to work with his other diabetic patients--to see if this was true for them or simply something unique to Lucky. Their eyes had the same story Lucky's did with being high, low or in the right zone.

Description

Hypoglycemia Associated With Oleander Toxicity In A Dog

Go to: Introduction Nerium oleander is an evergreen ornamental flowering shrub of the family Apocyanaceae. All parts of the plant are toxic, and the toxicity is due to toxic cardenolides [1]. These compounds are cardiac glycosides, and cause inhibition of plasmalemma Na+,K+ATPase [1]. The resulting effects in humans and animals are similar [2, 3] with gastrointestinal irritation, hyperkalemia, and cardiac arrhythmias, the predominant symptoms. In addition, renal damage has been noted in horses with oleander toxicosis [4]. Nerium oleander plant extracts have been under investigation as hypoglycemic agents in the study of diabetes mellitus in experimental animal models [5, 6]. In an experimental rat model, Mwafy and Yassin (2011) [5] demonstrated lower blood glucose levels in diabetic rats treated with Nerium oleander extract compared with controls. In another study [6], experimentally induced diabetic rats had improved pancreatic beta cell function when administered Nerium oleander distillate, suggesting insulin secretagogue and sensitizing effects of the extract. Further analysis by spectrometric analysis [7] has identified chlorogenic acid in Nerium leaves, a noncompetitive inhibi Continue reading >>

Hyperglycemia is when your body doesn't have enough insulin or can't use insulin correctly. Typically hyperglycemia is treated by adjusting your insulin dosages.

Hypoglycemia

The sugar that the brain and other organs use for energy is called glucose and is found in the bloodstream. Glucose is formed during the digestion of foods and can be stored in the liver as glycogen. Hypoglycemia simply means a low blood sugar. When the brain is deprived of the energy that it needs, seizures can occur. Other symptoms of hypoglycemia include weakness, tremors, irritability, lethargy, incoordination, nervousness and hunger. The mechanisms responsible for hypoglycemia are excess insulin from insulin overdose or insulinoma, reduction of hormones needed for maintenance of normal serum glucose, reduced ability of the liver to produce glucose or store glycogen, excessive utilization or reduced nutritional intake. Hypoglycemia is diagnosed based on clinical symptoms of hypoglycemia, blood glucose concentrations that show low blood sugar and the fact that symptoms disappear when glucose is administered to the patient. If the diagnosis is positive for hypoglycemia your vet may want to do further testing to determine the cause of the hypoglycemia. Some of the specific causes of hypoglycemia are: Young dogs - Liver shunts, congenital hypothyroidism, transient juvenile hypoglyc Continue reading >>
