I tried testing for the first time yesterday it did not go well I got really frustrated. At some point I wished it was my other cat he is so much easier to handle and stays still unlike Biskey. But i will try again today with 26 gauge instead of 30. My question is i have been seeing on the forum that it could take a few days to actually get any blood from the ear. How many times a day should i be trying to lance the ear to get blood to come out when i am first starting out ?
