    Easy to use

    By on

    This system is easy to use once you get used to it. The test strips that you purchase separately are packaged so that the foil package is very easy to open. The ones that come with the kit are a bit more challenging to open. I always insert the strip into the meter before I lance my dog. It takes less blood than the Alpha Trac, so that is a positive. I rated this meter 4 stars because I find it bulky and more difficult to handle with one hand than the Alpha Trac. Other than that it is my meter of choice.

    Has both pros and cons:

    By on

    I have been using a Human Glucose Monitor on our pug for the past 9 months. After reading information online regarding testing, I thought it would be a good idea to do a comparison test with both meters. Pros: Price of Monitor Kit is reasonable. Works with very little blood. Large display for easy reading. Came with a control solution. Strips are individually foil wrapped. Cons: Hard to handle. You need more than 2 hands. Once you have gotten blood to sample, then you must insert strip and it takes 2 hands to completely push in. I have tried numerous times to do it with one, and when I went test blood sample it falls out.

    Make sure you touch the top of test strip to blood

    By on

    Bought this for our cat worked great after I watched a video on how to use it. You need to touch the tip of the test strip to blood. Cheaper to buy new kits every time instead of buying just test strips after you run out. We ended up having to put our cat down last night but maybe they will be needed for another animal At a later date.

    PetTest system is a game changer

    By on

    I have both the AlphaTrak2 & the PetTest meters. PetTest is by far easier to use. Draws the blood in immediately if you have a good drop. AlphaTrak is much more difficult & the strips are so expensive. The meter comes pre-set so I'm not sure what the issue is about that. You can get PetTest strips that are easier to open now but obviously the cost is more. I have had no trouble with it at all & so glad to have found out about it.

    Lancet doesn’t work

    By on

    Lancet doesn’t draw blood using it at the highest setting on the inside of ear. I can’t get enough blood to test glucose levels

    WORST METER EVER - DO NOT BUY

    By on

    Hard to set up, the directions are not clear and seemed to be for a different model. Could not code as the coding directions did not match the device. Also, the on/off button is under the lid for the battery compartment so every time you want to set/reset or turn the meter on/off, you have to remove the lid.

    newly Diagnosed Diabetic dog - easy to use. will help with a home curves

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    Dog recently diagnosed. I joined the FB canine diabetic group and ordered thru their discount code, just paid $7 for shipping. It was easy to set up (watched videos on the diabetic group and made a call to the 800# on the box. they answered immediately and walked me through double checking I set it up correctly . I did not use the lancet device it came with. Used the lancets on the elbow callus. had the meter ready on the floor with test strip in but not all the way in. used the lancet, pushed the strip in, touched tiny blood spot with the test strip on a slight angle. got an successful reading that counted down in 5 seconds. the strip package is a pain to open.

I careful cut both ends of the foil to remove test strip since I ruined two trying to twist the foil open in the center. I got an E5 code which means damaged strip, used new strip and got a reading. It was recommended to get a back up meter. I saw this on chewy for$16 and ordered as a back up... the strips are a little pricey. I did not use the test solution. hint: I put a flash light on the ground so I could see the tiny blood drop better when using the lancet. definitely check out videos on use. it came with one but can't view with my mac. laptop. call company with any questions and watch videos... very easy to use and requires less blood than human meters. you have to use the brand strips .. cannot use any others … more

    Lifesaving device

    By on

    The Advocate PetTest meter is a life saver. I learned how & why to use it from the wonderful Facebook group for diabetic dogs, Canine Diabetes Support & Information. Every meter including your vet's is allowed a variance of 20%+- & is still in range. My routine is safe & simplified with this meter & relatively inexpensive strips, & the blood sample required is very small. My dog gets a little treat after his test & accepts it completely.
