We test Alice fairly often. She only has one good ear to work with, and a very small and tricky part of the other, unless I go for a spot besides those capillaries around that one vein. I do try to give her breaks and cut back testing to the minimums after a day heavy of it due to low sugar, etc. We have Neosporin with pain relief. It seem like the past few days she's just been a lot more insistent that she doesn't want it, and like the second the lancet touches her ear, she reacts, and it's not a happy reaction. Maybe she's just feeling a whole lot better, and stronger to fight about it, but to me it seems like she has been more sensitive recently. Beyond the Neosporin, what else do we have in the FD arsenal to help make her more comfortable? If anything? Also, how long does it really typically take a FD cat to heal from each little prick? What about when there have been ten or twenty in a day? (Twenty is excessive in theory, I'm not sure we have actually hit that number, but it could happen. She got poked a lot Sunday due to lows.) Thanks!
