Hypoglycemia refers to levels of blood sugar below the normal canine range of 2.5 - 6.0 mmol/L (80 - 120 u/L).

This differs from euglycemia (normal blood sugar levels) and hyperglycemia commonly observed with stress or diabetes mellitus.

Transient hypoglycemia may be due to stress, or, more commonly, is observed clinically in dogs with insulin overdose and concurrent diseases such as insulinoma.
