pet hypoglycemia


  • Hypoglycemia can occur when there's not enough glucose, or sugar, in your pet’s bloodstream to maintain normal bodily functions; since glucose is the primary energy source for the body's cells, this imbalance can be life-threatening
  • Symptoms of hypoglycemia include lethargy, trembling, anxiety, seizures and coma
  • Take action at the first signs of hypoglycemia by feeding a regular meal; if that’s not possible or your pet is unconscious, rub honey on their gums
  • If your pet remains unconscious despite administering honey, you need to get him to an emergency clinic immediately
  • Caring for diabetic pets effectively means sticking to a set routine each day, with high-quality meals and insulin given at set intervals and exercise made a priority
