Would low blood sugar effect behavior?
My dog is usually pretty mellow except when he is guarding something. Then he growls at us. I tried to get him out from under the bed and he snapped at me once.
I took him to a new vet and he commented on how he was timid, but a nice dog and walked well on leash. He did not worry when I told him about the growling, but he seemed surprised.
It was his annual exam, so he got some shots and lab tests. Everything was normal except his glucose was a little out of the range, low. 67 when normal starts at 70.
The vet said we can do a fasting test in a few weeks to make sure it is not a problem.
He eats dry food with some pumpkin added. His weight is normal.
