Featuring Ann's Tugger
.
Thank you Ann for taking time to take these pictures to help others who are trying to do a blood test on a carpal pad
in order to check the blood glucose of their pet with diabetes mellitus.
A picture is worth a thousand words and Tugger you are such a good boy for posing for these pictures.


Above Ann's Index finger you can see Tugger's Carpal Pad.
Here is a closeup.

Pull the carpal pad to the side with the index finger.

Insert lancet straight into the side of the pad.

Waiting for the blood drop.
Here is a closeup.

Put the test strip up to the blood drop. The test pad  has already been inserted into the glucometer
and it will draw the blood in and in a short time you will have the blood glucose number.

Ann wipes off the excess blood from Tugger's Carpal Pad.

Thank you Tugger for being such a good boy and posing for the above pictures!!!!
