She said that normal values should lie between 3.6-7. Everything else was normal. Maxx is a high energy dude. Not looking too comatose! It is hard to talk to my vet as she has a major aversion to the raw food thing. Are normal blood values for dogs on commercial pet foods even applicable to raw fed dogs?
Thanks for any help!
A blood glucose level of .01 mmol/L is impossible, so I would guess lab error if that's what the vet is saying the results were.
Normal blood glucose values would be the same no matter what the dog was eating.
