Hi. my sister dog, (Mambo, he is a purebred golden retriever, 7 yo) started to have seizures couple weeks ago and the veterinarian still doesn't know what is going on despite all the exams.
Any chance someone can help?
I know that he has no brain tumor. They think is something related to sugar levels since his sugar blood is getting low but both veterinarian oncologist don't think is insulinoma.
He is at the hospital and they are been able to control with special food but still no diagnoses.
Any advice, experience will be great!
Thanks in advance!

Bruna De Franca. I'm moving your thread to "Golden Retrievers with Seizures" which is a subset of "Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy, Physiology, & Breed Standard." It is likely your question will get more attention there.

I hope you are able to determine Mambo's diagnosis soon and that he stays healthy!

Thank you so much for all the articles. I read all of them and helped a lot!
The vet knows his seizures are cause due to Hypoglycemia, but they don't know why. He has been treated for hypothyroidism for few years now and he's very allergic, he needs injections for dermatitis.
And is not Insulinoma.

How did the vet rule out insulinoma? I had taken my dog to a vet, same symptoms, vet said insulinoma was rare, he never had seen a case in 30 years, said insulinoma is very unlikely. I insisted on having an expensive test done. It was so long ago that I don't remember, maybe it was a CAT scan, had to bring in a specialist and equipment to do it. Well it was an insulinoma.
