Dogs/Cats: iPet Glucose Monitoring Kit All weights Use the Glucose Monitoring Kit as directed by your veterinarian. Start by petting and stroking your pet. Clean the stick area with water and then dry thoroughly. Gently massage the ear (in cats) or paw area (in dogs and cats) to increase blood flow and enlarge the capillaries and veins. Praise your pet and consider giving a treat. Locate a vein on your cat’s ear by shining a flashlight behind it. The vein will look like a red string and should be near the edge of the ear. If you are using a paw pad, use the large pad. Position the lancet and do the prick. Touch the tip of the test strip to the top of the blood drop at a slight angle. Wait for the glucometer to give the final reading. Record the date, time and glucose reading

There is not a more frustrating chronic medical condition to treat and monitor in small animal veterinary medicine than diabetes mellitus. . For years we have struggled not only with which are the best insulins to use in our pets, but also how best to monitor their treatment and make insulin dosage adjustments in a condition which fluctuates from day to day. Unlike in human medicine, where at home sugar monitoring is the norm, up until recently veterinarians relied on blood sugar measurements at the vet office every 1-2 hours throughout a 12-24 hour period following insulin administration to try and understand whether diabetes was well controlled, however this method in recent years has come under frequent scrutiny and criticism by even the best endocrinologists in our profession, because of the stress involved in keeping the animals away from their guardians for such prolonged periods thus affecting accuracy of such measurements, as well as the daily variation in sugars that often occur, which cant be accounted for when doing such a blood sugar curve during one day only. The other test commonly used by vets at their office measuring something known as a fructosamine level also has its limitations and down sides. Many of the so called human glucometers out there are calibrated for human use, and while less expensive than this instrument , are often not as accurate being sometimes 50 up to 100 percent off in actual blood sugar measurements in dogs and cats . This wonderful ipet glucose machine can be calibrated for either a dog or cat, allowing for easy measurement of blood sugars at home in a less stressful situation, thus increasing accuracy of blood sugar measurements, and allowing both guardians and veterinarians to better regulate their pets. While the price may seem a bit high, an animal guardian should keep in mind that either the above SINGLE day blood sugar curve done at vet offices often costs much more than this, as well as the cost of the single fructosamine test, long term use of this product make it an excellent buy and certainly save the animal guardian money in the long run(replacing the need for these repetitive less accurate tests in many circumstances done over and over again by veterinarians), but most importantly allows us to better regulate and treat this common hormonal disorder. I therefore give this product an overall rating and effectiveness of a 5, and its ease of use a 5. 04/13/2009
If you care enough! I am so very tired of reading the reviews that are telling other people to use human monitors! DO NOT DO THAT!!! My precious cat has gone to he** and back trying to get her levels regulated! So much so that she developed diabetic ulcers on her back, got infections and lost her hair! If you love your animals enough you will do what is best for them! I never used a human monitor, and the people who did got lucky. Don't risk your loved ones health to save a few dollars, and it really is just a few dollars! They can't tell us what is wrong and they expect us to know what to do for them. If money is so much an issue that you would take a risk like that, find a home for your animal that will give them proper care. This is a dangerous disease and should be treated as such!!! 06/15/2012
Excelent !! I am very please with the IPET . It gives me peace of mind being able to monitor my pet's glucose myself. Also it only takes a drop of blood , I have a 16 pound Dachsund. 05/01/2012
Needs too much blood! While this monitor is specifically calibrated for either cats or dogs the strips require a 1.5microliter sample of blood to test. I have not tested dogs but can say from experience that is a HUGE amount to get from a cats ear tip! Add to that the high price of the strips and likely errors from insufficient blood sample it can get very expensive very fast! I find human glucometers require anywhere from 0.6 microliters to the very smallest sample size a 0.3microliter sample. I would not want to be doing curves on my kitty using these! Additionally I have read that the discrepancy in readings between pet vs. human meters is usually in the extreme numbers which are made to encourage humans to take action faster when seeing an extreme reading. 09/05/2011
The iPet Glucometer Kit I love it.Once I read all the instructions and used it on my dog I really find it very simple and accurate.And it gives me back my time,less stress for her because I was having to go to the vet everyday to get it checked and now we do it in our own time and because of the less stress factor it provides us with a more accurate reading. P.S. They have a DVD coming out with video instructions,and the kit provides a log book to log it all so that the vet has his info too . 05/01/2009

Answer: 
I have a small breed dog (bichon, shih tzu, poodle mix.) I am able to get blood samples from her ear, (she has floppy ears and the best area is the outside edge of the inside). I do two things first. One, I bought a beard and mustache trimmer from my local drug store and I use it to carefully trim the hair on the inside of her ear so the blood pools into a dot more easily. Then, I get her to play and run a bit before taking the sample because increasing her heart rate causes the vessels in her ear to dilate. This helps me to get a sample big enough for the test strip. (I have a laser pointer toy specifically for dogs that she goes crazy for.) I hope this helps!

Answer: 
On cats a blood sample is taken from the outer edge of a cats ear. On a dog they use some area on the pads. I have never done a dog so I can not be specific, however I can tell you that there are many videos on utube which demonstrate exactly how and where to get a sample for either cats or dogs.

Answer: 
It would not matter for getting the sample but a veterinarian would certainly prescribe the appropriate dose of insulin (if required) taking the pets weight into consideration among other factors.

Answer: 
The test is a measure of glucose in the blood. How much the pet weighs or if it is a larger breed does not affect any of the testing requirements. However, by keeping the pet's weight within normal range for the breed that will hopefully help reduce the blood glucose levels. Just like in humans, diabetes is controlled by diet and exercise, not just medications.
