Newly Diagnosed Diabetic Dog

My dog, Barney, was just diagnosed as Diabetic a few days ago. He is ll years old and otherwise healthy. Today was my first day of testing and injections. The injection went well, but the testing with the Glucose meter did not go well at all. He cries every time I try to prick him and when I finally did draw blood it was not enough to register on the meter. I attempted this 5 times and gave up, is there anything els I can do to calm him or test his blood sugar. I don't want to torture him by trying over and over again.

Any information you can offer would be helpful, I am a little stressed by all of this, but determined to figure it out.

Thanks
