I purchased the Diaionix Glucose/Ketone Test strips along with the Diaionix and Dermaionix for my Chihuahua.There wasn't an info sheet with the strips and I'm ubsure of what his readings should be,and how often to test.He also has a heart murmur. He is almost 10 yrs. old and weighs 11.6 lbs.Would you please also confirm what his dosage amount of both products should be? We have his litter mate too, who is without the same health issues. Can the products be safely used for him too, as a preventive??? Thank You so much for your advice. Anita

Dear Anita,

I would try 1/4 teaspoon Dia-IonX in the morning and 1/4 teaspoon Derma-IonX in the evening. If there is softening of the stool then decrease the amount slightly for a while.

There are instructions for the urine sticks on the website. You need to briefly dip the stick in some urine and tap the stick to knock off the excess. Wait 30 seconds and then match the color of the stick to the package. The goal should be at a trace (100). If it is negative you should call your veterinarian and have a blood test done.

Best regards,
Dr. Char
