Default Re: Is my dog beginning to fail?

Hello, and welcome! I'm sorry to hear that Bailey is having some trouble.

I think I would first rule out an underlying infection. It's possible he has an infection from the growth that was removed, or sometimes bacteria in the dog's mouth can enter their bloodstream and give them an infection. So that would be the first thing I would consider. See if a round of antibiotics takes care of it (and some dogs do experience fluctuating glucose while they're on antibiotics, so ride out the full course before deciding whether or not it worked).
