    Good Quality and Price

    The meter worked very well and was easy to use. The lancing devise needed to be on the highest setting to draw blood but maybe my cat just has thick skin. Overall I am happy to have this product so I can test my cat myself instead of boarding him for a half day at the vet. It saved me time and money The meter worked very well and was easy to use.

    Worthless lancing device

    By Lisa on Jan 19, 2021

    The monitor works well, and it takes just a tiny amount of blood. But, as other reviewers have said, the lancing device is worthless! After placing the “depth adjustable cap” on the device, then pull on the plunger to get it ready for poking, nothing happens. The one time I was able to get it to work The monitor works well, and it takes just a tiny amount of blood. But, as other reviewers have said, the lancing device is worthless! After placing the “depth adjustable cap” on the device, then pull on the plunger to get it ready for poking, nothing happens. The one time I was able to get it to work I had to mess with the depth adjustable cap forEVER to get it to work. I can’t seem to make it work again. Cats are not patient enough to have to go through that every time! … more

    Nothing to great

    By on top1000Contributor

    It’s easy to use and setup but the strips are individually wrapped which is annoying. Having a hard time getting the blood in the strips.

    Lancet sucks! Strips are WAY too expensive!

    By on

    The lancet device is USELESS! The strips for this meter are WAY too expensive! The only good thing is the meter doesn’t require much blood.

    Favorite meter

    By on

    This meter is good, the lancing device and lancets are useless. The strips require less blood than other meters me tried. Do a google search for “advocate safety lancets” the green ones ALWAYS get blood. Also use a sock full of rice and heat in the microwave for ~ 17 seconds, apply to area before drawing blood.

    Don’t bother with the lancing device

    By on

    The strips work quickly and don’t require much blood. The meter is easy to use and appears accurate. However we have found the lancing device to be defective in two different kits. It seems to be too long for the kit lancets. Even on the highest setting it doesn’t poke through the whole in the cap.

    A must have for anyone with a diabetic cat

    By on

    I love this device and wish I had purchased it when my cat was first diagnosed several years ago. It is so helpful to know what his levels are without going to a vet. It is also easier to use than I anticipated.

    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.
