Searching for blood glucose device for diabetic cat

My cat is newly diagnosed as having diabetes. We've sorted out food and we're experts at injecting her twice a day.

Up until now she's been going to the vet every few weeks for monitoring of blood glucose, but now the vet recommends we do it at home, so we're looking for the best place to buy this:

AlphaTRAK 2 Veterinary Blood Glucose Monitoring Meter Kit

Any suggestions? Anyone else going through this? I can't find it in Switzerland and the prices vary wildly online, so I'd like to find a reputable supplier, as we'll have to stock up on test strips in the future.

Thanks!
Kate

Re: Searching for blood glucose device for diabetic cat

How do you get the blood for testing?

If you are not worried about the cost, I have heard people using Abbott’s Free Style Libre with their pets. https://www.freestylelibre.ch/fr_CH/

I’ve been using them myself for almost four years. It is a much better way of monitoring my glucose levels.

Perhaps check with your Vet.
