This device does not work. I have tried with all the provided rings to adjust the depth of the prick but I cannot get a bead of blood big enough for the meter. There is no reliable vacuum. The device creates a vacuum only half the time and is unpredictable. My dog will not sit still for repeated tries. For such an expensive tool is should work 100 percent.
I've been using the Pet Test meter & strips from the beginning. Today is Kona's 4th sugarvesary. I bought this package for a backup to my current meter & Genteel. This system makes testing glucose quick, simple, accurate & painless. My dog is perpetually safe because I can test glucose & prevent hypoglycemia. I learned how thanks to the Facebook group Canine Diabetes Support & Information. My only concern about this kit is that the strips expire in a few days, & from experience I know that makes them inaccurate. Fresher strips should be included in the kit. Otherwise, I absolutely recommend this kit.
This testing kit is so much better than others I've tried. The special lancing device does make it more expensive, but it's well worth the extra cost. This lancing device makes it very simple to get enough of a blood sample ON THE FIRST TRY! And... the test strips are awesome! They actually draw the blood in (unlike other test strips) which also makes it easier to get a reading. It's been a stressful time for my dog and for all of us, so I really appreciate finding a product that makes our lives a little easier. Thank you PetTest!!!
Don’t waste your money. Went back to my first system. Tried everything recommended. Read the manual over and over. Nothing happens except making my dog nervous when I open the box to try again. Wasted my money on this!!!
