Q. Hello, I'm chris and my 6 year old chawawa is a diabetic. Is there anyway that I can check his sugar with my blood meter?
A. Yes, it can be done although human glucometers are often not very accurate in animals. There are very accurate glucometers for dogs, for example Alfatrak. You can get it e.g from here http://www.pet360.com/product/52034/alphatrak-2-glucose-starter-kit
The main difficulty is obtaining a blood sample. You can ask your vet to show you how to do it. With some experience it can be done fairly quickly and painlessly. Personally, my favourite site to take a blood sample is dog's ear.
