Question: Dear Dr. Joi, my vet is charging fifty dollars per glucose monitoring appointment and in only a month, he has gone from three units to two units to 3 units again, and now four. I’m in debt for this many office visits and he’s getting it wrong. I’ve quit him. I’m sure I can test better, more timely, and not pay two hundred dollars per month. Do owners do okay testing at home using a kit? I’ll certainly go to a vet if needed, and most owners say they go to an appointment every three or four months. My cat is nine, lives outdoors, sometimes eats field mice, is normal weight, and eats all canned meaty cat food and nibbles at dry cat chow three times a day. The vet said he’d order me a kit for 280 dollars. This is hugely over the cost of online kits. Can you advise me?

Some of the questions I get are worth sharing. Today's question is about blood glucose monitoring and kitty diabetes regulation.
