I never had much luck from jesses ear and have used her inner lip above her canine tooth for the 8.5 years shes been diabetic . We may have tested there 10,000 times or more . Now once a dog is regulated most times you dont need to test as much . We haven't done a curve in years but i do test her before giving a dose of insulin or if things get a bit out of whack .

Complete curves are the only way to know what blood sugar is doing and raising or lowering the dose is based on the lowest number within that complete curve
Jesse-26 lbs - 16 years old ,10.5 years diabetic, one meal a day homemade and a vitabone snack . 3 shots of Novolin a day . Total insulin for a 24 hour period is 6.5 units of NPH insulin .
