Default Re: Stiff legs. Diabetic dog isn't walking well and falling/tipping over

hi and welcome

high sugar may aggravate existing arthritis but what you describe sounds different

if you could take a video of what you are seeing and post it so we can see that maybe helpful

do you understand the symptoms of low sugar ? usually they appear to be in a drunken state stumbling and maybe falling and could be quite lethargic
Jesse-26 lbs - 15.5 years old - 10 years diabetic - one meal a day homemade and a vitabone snack - 3 shots of Novolin a day sometimes Novolog or r as a correction to higher sugar but that is rare. total insulin for a 24 hour period is between 8 and 10 units of NPH insulin depending on her fasting number
