Sugar stored in the liver will be released to the blood of an animal in stress-induced situations to be prepared for “escape” or “fight”. This reaction has a direct impact on blood glucose levels. When the blood sugar of your pet is measured under relaxed and usual conditions athome the results are much more reliable causing less stress for the pet owner as well.
Home-monitoring of blood glucose is practical, stress-free and important for optimal treatment by the veterinarian. The diabetes therapy of your pet can perfectly be adjusted by means of this data.
A stable diabetic cat should have a blood glucose range of about 80-150 mg/dL (4,4-8,3 mmol/L) for most of the day.*
A stable diabetic dog should have a blood glucose range of about 80-150 mg/dL (4,4-8,3 mmol/L) for most of a 24 hour period.*
Contact a veterinary surgeon and follow his or her treatment advice about the target range for the horse.*
