Just as in humans, our pets can have Type I or Type II diabetes. Diabetes is a disease that affects the body’s ability to convert glucose into energy. But don’t worry, diabetes is manageable. With proper management a diabetic dog or cat can lead an active life.
Blood glucose monitoring at home allows you to measure your pet’s glucose levels when they are experiencing their regular daily routine. This provides your veterinarian with accurate data to help assess the treatment plan.
Home monitoring also allows you to measure your pet’s glucose level if you suspect that it is too low or too high. Knowing your pet’s blood glucose level may help you avoid unnecessary emergency veterinary clinic visits or diabetic complications.
