A continuous glucose monitoring device that is already being used with human patients with diabetes is now being used on pets and other animals with the disease. "Our research has found that continuous glucose monitoring devices can be used in dogs, cats, cows and horses," says Charles Wiedmeyer of the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine. "Use of this system alleviated the need for multiple blood samples. It also reduces the stress associated with obtaining those samples."
