how does one get this for their dog?
Continuous Glucose Monitoring Systems
There is another system for monitoring blood glucose but it is not for everyone. On one hand, it allows for continuous monitoring of the pet’s blood glucose but on the other hand it involves permanent implantation of a sensor under the pet’s skin. Glucoses can be monitored at home without the stress of transport to the veterinarian’s office or the stress of needle sticks. The Medtronic’s Guardian RT is probably the unit to use. A glucose is displayed every 5 minutes on a monitor connected wirelessly to the sensor implanted under the skin as long as the two devices are within 6 feet of each other. (The monitor can be attached to the pet’s collar.) Results can also be downloaded into a software program for the generation of a printable glucose curve. The external portion of the sensor is a couple of inches in diameter and the pet must be able to tolerate it without attempting to remove it. The device is typically worn on the pet’s back or between the shoulders.
