How does the VETIONX canine diabetes strip work? Does it go in a meter for a numerical reading, or is it color coded? Our 12 year old Lab has been diagnosed as diabetic, I am looking for an alternate blood sugar test method. We have to draw blood from a vein and while she and I don't mind doing that for a more accurate reading from time to time, I don't want to draw blood from the veins in her legs for every test. I am a long time diabetic and have multiple meters and have tried to test her urine readings using my strips against the blood tests, but have not been able to develop a correlation between the two. The urine test will occasionally be within the accuracy of the meter's blood test (I use two meters at the same time, one for blood and one for urine) but not enough to accurately calculate the insulin dose. I want to take good care of Bella, she is one of our 6 rescues that we kept, (we have rescued and placed a lot of orphans and throwaways). The others are aging and I would like to have a simple method to test all the canines from time to time. We also have 22 rescue goats and who knows how many chickens, and an undetermined number of cats. Our vet and her assistant are household members, but I want a way to monitor Bella especially, on a daily schedule. These strips would be a blessing.
