Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Normal glucose ranges are 60-110, roughly. Diabetic dogs are treated a little differently in that we aim for an average over the course of the day and not just a single number all the time. Thus, the glucose may be 80 in the morning before eating and 250 afterwards and still be within a reasonable treatment range despite being over the "normal" for a non-diabetic dog.

Did my response help to answer all of the questions that you had? If questions remain, please reply and let me know how I can assist.
