Default Re: possibly diabetic maltese!?

yes the 204 is not very high and may point to your pup is still producing some insulin . if he wasnt blood sugar would be much higher . my jesse was diagnosed with blood sugar in the 600s

you do need more testing and not just one test at the vets to determine a diagnosis . in this situation i may do multiple tests throughout the day (curve ) before jumping into a dose of insulin . if these numbers remained in the 200s and lower the normal starting dose might need to be allot lower or not give any at all . some dogs on the forum can only get blood sugar in the 200s and higher with injected insulin

there could be some pancreatic problems going on affecting how insulin is produces and something to look into

glad your testing it will help to figure this out
