A blood glucose of 460 before or after eating? Has your veterinarian recently performed a glucose curve on your dog to make sure your dose is appropriate? If your dog's blood glucose was 460 before eating, this may suggest that your dog's diabetes is NOT being controlled with his current insulin dosage. Because diabetes is such a serious condition, and the fact that your dog is demonstrating abnormal behavior, I would suggest taking your dog to be seen as soon as possible by a veterinarian.
