A 6.5 yr old castrated male mixed-breed dog was presented for clinical signs associated with hypoglycemia. Hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia was diagnosed as the cause of the persistent hypoglycemia. No obvious pancreatic mass was seen on abdominal computed tomography and exploratory laparotomy. A partial pancreatectomy was performed with the suspicion of an insulinoma-causing hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia. Nesidioblastosis was diagnosed based clinical, biochemical, and histopathologic findings. There was beta cell hyperplasia and no evidence of neoplasia. The dog was euglycemic postoperatively after a partial pancreatectomy. Long-term follow-up after 2 yr revealed that the dog was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus.
