Booger's BG level was 61 at his check up last December. He had been
fasted for longer than he should have. In Jan it was 64 and since then
it has held at 71. He has no other symptoms of insulinoma. We will go
back for another check up in Jun, but I don't think my vet wants to do
any thing about it.
