Different dogs/different curves. My Abby will sometimes go up from a fasting number and sometimes go down... same food... same time.

But overall, those are great numbers, so far!!

This is the first one I am doing. It just seemed odd because when I have done random testing his numbers are 130, 160, 166. I will continue. Going to do another in about 20 minutes. So we will see what that one is.

Latest number is 218. When I was at the vet last week I told him I was checking his blood glucose at home, that day the number was 203 and he said that was too high, that's why I was worried when it went to 255 today.

I'm still trying to figure all this stuff out. The response I've gotten from all the nice people here are saying his numbers are good (thank you ). I was under the assumption that under 180 was good and over that was not good.

I've got a lot to learn! So thankful for this community! It's good to be able to hear from others experience.

my vet told me that overall we are looking for good averages. Dogs and meters are going to fluctuate, it is not an exact science so that is why most of us shoot for a range to be happy about.

I bet your dog is feeling good at those #'s. Mine is friskier, peppier and bossier when she ranges from 150-250. that's a good thing! congrats

You don't want to get in such low ranges that you have no wiggle room. I keep Maggie pretty tight regulation wise because I am with her all the time but I would take 200s and be very happy. Some people here never see numbers less than 300.

Those numbers look good to me too. I wouldn't be worried by a 255.

Eddie's numbers always tend to go up after food/insulin and he is at his highest around 6 hours after food/insulin time. He is at his lowest just before eating. It's the opposite of what most seem to do but that doesn't bother him ... he just hasn't read the doggy diabetes manual properly!
