Blood Glucose Test Sites and Techniques
Due to variability among species, it is essential to use a veterinary-validated blood glucose meter versus a human device for at home blood glucose monitoring. Blood sample collection sites often used include the ears, gums, paw pads, and elbow callus.
The Importance of Blood Glucose Curves at Home
Performing blood glucose curves at home improves accuracy of results, allows for convenience and cost benefits, and improves monitoring capabilities. The benefits of these factors can result in a healthier pet due to better control of diabetes.
