A new way to test blood glucose

Our lead nurse Cody’s cat came in to see us last week for blood glucose testing. Harley is the first diabetic cat we’ve tested using a constant glucose monitoring system which is attached to the shaved flank of the cat. The monitor stays in situ for up to 14 days which allows time to adjust meds if necessary and check any changes to dose are correct. All readings are taken by mobile phone instead of using the traditional pin prick method, which is non-invasive and definitely preferable all round! We loved having Harley here and are now glucose monitor converts!
