Blood Glucose Test
Make sure you have all the items needed to test before you perform a blood glucose test. Blood Glucose Meter
Prepare for the Test
1. Select the test site There are many sites to obtain capillary blood samples from your pets: the marginal ear vein in both cats and dogs; paw pads in cats and dogs; leg callus in dogs; inner or outer lip for dogs only.
Warming the area will help increase blood flow. This can be done by Gently rubbing the test sites or
Applying a warm (not hot)cloth to the test site. If using a wet cloth, place the cloth inside a plastic bag to avoid diluting the blood sample.
2. Wash your hands and the test site with warm water and soap to ensure accurate results. Thoroughly dry your hands and test the site of your pet. (If using a 70% isopropyl alcohol prep pad to clean the site, let it air dry before sampling.)
3. Prepare a lancing device and lancet according to instructions included with the device.
4. After sampling, gently apply pressure to the test site with sterile gauze or cotton wool to help stop the blood flow.

I switched from the alpha track meter system because it was getting too expensive to buy the test strips. It is necessary for me to test my pet 2 to 3 times a day so the cost of the test strips s a big deal. I love how this meter just sucks up the blood. Plus there is no worry about having the code wrong. In comparing the two the reads varied just a little but within the guidelines of the meter. I like this system much better. It is easier to use, very accurate plus affordable. Get it you won't regret it!

price is much better than the competition, which I also have & use occasionally, to check pettiest results.
results compare well, as long as you get an adequate blood sample to the test strip, as described in the advocate user manual. it's important, or you will get an actual bg result that is wrong.
