Her February BG numbers look really good. Most of us here on the forum would be extremely happy with these numbers.

The article that jesse girl has provided may provide some clues as to why Snowball is experiencing periods of weakness. Your vet should be able to diagnose the root cause or at least refer you to a specialist that can help out.
