I know Diabetes Alert Dogs are all the rage right now however I am curious to know if anyone else out there has experienced their normal pet dog reacting to their diabetes. My boyfriend's parents have a dog who many years ago when I has experiencing a rather high blood sugar reacted and starting whining and wouldn't leave me alone. Now I have my own dog, an American Bulldog/Collie mix, who is 2 years old and has started showing signs of being anxious when my sugars aren't quite right. It could be either a high or a low sugar but he will even from a dead sleep get up come look at me start acting nervous and either lay down next to me or if I am up moving around the apartment he will follow me around closely enough that he has to be touching me. The longer I go ignoring how he's acting the more nervous he will get and has gotten to the point of barking at me for ignoring him.
If my blood sugars are fine he doesn't act anything like this. Its almost like a he-knows-but-he-doesn't-know-what-he-knows situation. I don't think its anything we could train him on since he doesn't know what is making him nervous and its not every single time. Just curious if anyone else has situations like this.
