Default Re: Poll: How and Where you test your dog's blood sugar

Dog lays down, I stand over it's back (leg on each side), facing same direction as the dog.

Where - Inner top lip, right side, near canine teeth. Wipe lip first.

Lancing device - One Touch

Lancet - One Touch Ultrasoft, it doesn't say what gauge on the box

Setting - 4 for Soaphie, 5 for Sydney (on scale of 1 to 9, 9 being the deepest)

Meter - One Touch Ultra2

The underside of the top lip above the canine tooth.
Used the ReliOn 31g lancets freehand, without the device.
