Hello

My name is Cindy and I heard about this website from a friend. My 11 year old Poodle/Shih Tzu cross was diagnosed a few days ago with Diabetes. I am a little stressed and having major issues trying to test his blood. If anyone has any information that can help, please let me know.

Thanks

Welcome to the board, Cindy!

It might also be helpful to start a new thread in the senior dog forum about the problems you're encountering. I hope someone will be able to answer your questions about the testing. We have a number of members who have had experience with diabetic dogs.

Meanwhile, we'd love to see pics of your boy when things settle down a bit.
