    DCIN (Diabetic Cats In Need) helps low income caregivers who would have to euthanize or re-home their diabetic cats due to not being able to afford the expenses that come along with this diagnosis. We provide insulin as well as testing supplies but as most of you know, our favorite meter has been discontinued.

    We STILL really need your unwanted glucometers, but ONLY Arkray 01s, ReliOn Confirms, ReliOn Micros, and One Touch UltraMinis. The first 3 listed are the ones we've used for years due to their very small sample size, but the manufacturer has stopped making them. We CAN still get strips for them, however.

    Once we can't source any more of those meters, we'll be switching to the One Touch UltraMini, which has a slightly larger sample size, but which takes generic strips, thus keeping the ongoing cost down. We could really use any of those you might have and not need.

    If you have any of these meters laying around and not being used, please consider sending them to DCIN so we can continue to help new sugarcat moms and dads!

    @dollydagger767, @Chris & China (GA) will likely see your post, but my note will also send her a tag directly as well. I hope that she can get the information for you or put you in touch with the right person to find out.
