Just wanted to introduce Pumpkin, my cherished 12 year old cat who was diagnosed with diabetes a month ago. I have been reading the excellent information at feline diabetes and I am both confused and overwhelmed about which glucometer to buy. The number of hours I have spent reading has brought less clarity. Watching videos of people using their glucometers does not give me much comfort, as my vet tried 3 times last Saturday using one of the glucometers specifically for pets and could not get enough blood for a sample. And, he is an excellent vet, and has a gift with interacting with my 2 cats, who started out their lives outside, feral and I adopted them when they were about a year or a year and a half old. How do I choose the simplest and least painful method for Pumpkin? Despite increases of insulin from 1 to 3- his blood sugar has not gone down. Diet changes have been made and we have transitioned to only 2 TBSP daily of Purina dm - diabetic dry food. Pumpkin is always starving now, and I want his symptoms to lessen and for him to be more like himself. I apologize if I am not in the correct forum. I tried to follow the directions, but could not get on the introduction page. With gratitude, Julia R Ps. If there is a phone number for tech support so that I am able to ask questions so that I am better educated re: participating in these forums, I would be most appreciative.
