I've been using the alpha trak 2. Test strips are 50$ for a box of 50. I'm testing my cat five times a day right now. Once pre morning shot. Once a couple hours after her morning shot. Once mid day. Once before pm shot. Once a couple hours after. That's five strips a day. I'd use the whole box of 50 in ten days. That's 150$ a month. Does this seem right to you or am I doing everything wrong?? I cannot afford that..
