I am wondering, because I think I used a vet that doesn't either know much about cat diabetes or doesn't really care, what would be a good meter to buy. The vet prescribed Prozinc and the U-40 test strips, neither of which does he carry, and basically sent me on my way. I asked if I needed a meter and he said oh no need for that just come back in a month and we will run another $200 blood test. I'm low income so that's not really an option and after reading up on all of this it seems that I should be taking his blood before almost every meal or ever meal or something like that but I am at a loss as to which meter to get as all of the posts that I have found are old and outdated which means I need to know the updated version of which meter I can rely on and don't have to spend too much money on. Any help would be greatly appreciated as now I feel as though I better go buy it now and start testing since the vet had me start Trooper (my cat) at 2 units twice a day and for various reasons that could be too much after his glucos levels go down.
