Customer Review

They saved our dog!! I would recommend this product to anyone with a diabetic dog!!!

Customer Review
expensive but worth it.

great product for my dog.

Customer Q&A
Could this item be used to measure other animal's blood glucose, for example, rat? What's the difference between items for dogs and cats.

We use them on our Cat, however, the electronic device has to be calibrated for a cat or a dog for them to work.

Customer Q&A
What is the code for cats on these strips. I am looking for 38?

Yes it's 38 as shown on the bottle. 36 for dogs.

Dog glucoseTest strip review.

It is much easier to test the blood with a very small sample and my dog is not even aware when the blood sample is tested. It is quick and easy for both my dog (Sara) and I.…

Customer Review
Dog Blood Sugars

Our dog is no longer with us but the meter and strips were most handy in keeping track of her blood sugar!

Customer Q&A
Are these strips compatible with the older Alpha Trak glucometer? I really don't want to purchase another glucometer when my old one still works.

animaleyecare.net, check out websites and blogs about dog or cat diabetes and eye care. They're very helpful when trying to make decisions to help our cats and dogs. My cat is in remission from diabetes for five months. I don't feed him dry food anymore. Too sugary. He only gets canned.

Customer Q&A
Is this a Code Cat 38?

I can't see the test strip you're referring to as each vial will come with different dog and cat codes. That being said, ironically, our current vial actually says "Code Dog 36.. Code Cat 38" so if this is what your vial says, I'd say yes this is the code for a cat. You merely recode your AlphaTRAK meter each time you open a new vial. We are using our second set of test strips which are the one stated above. I believe that our previous dog code was 21 and I don't remember what the cat code was on that vial. We've ordered and received a new vial of strips that's still unopened. I fully expect that one to have different codes that we'll need to reset on the meter. Hopefully, this message will answer your question.

Good value

Customer Review
Perfect for cats and dogs.

…Works for cats, dogs and other small animals Perfect for our cat, and if we ever need it, it will be useable for dogs too. I didn't expect one meter to work for both cats and dogs, but this one does!

Customer Q&A
Where do check levels with a dog? vet does it in his gums?

My dog has calluses on her elbows which I use since it doesn't seem to bother her. I've never heard of using gums. I would think that would be painful. Here's a video on YouTube showing how to use the Alpha Trak 2 that my vet showed me. It's really helpful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRPP8__OiFY

Is there a ferret code?

I only saw a code for dogs and one for cats.

Customer Q&A
Has anyone used the lancet to successfully get a blood sample from the paw of a cat? I would appreciate any tips you can give me.

Sorry, I use it on a dog but I was told that it can be used on the paw, the inner ear and the inner lip.

Im sorry Kairle. I do not know. by the time my order had arrived my dog had passed away. I wish I had a better answer. I know my vet recommended them highly. Also the customer service department was extremely helpful.

Customer Review
Works as well as AlphaTRAK 2 strips. Recent price increases make these less of a deal.

Customer Q&A
How do you test a dogs blood glucose levels

There are loads of youtube videos about this subject, including demos from the manufacturer. Search for blood glucose testing for dogs. For some dogs & owners, the process is pretty easy. But pls be patient. It may take time for you & your dog to learn this skill. I wish you the best.

Customer Q&A

Yes they do also comes with solution to calibrate it as long as you have it set on 36 for dogs works really well

Customer Q&A
Is the AlphaTrack2 meter (the picture disagrees with the description)?

Yes. This is definitely the AlphaTrack2. If you zoom in on the image shown in the ad you can actually see the 2 on the box and I can tell you without question you will receive the item as described. It works very well for dogs.

Customer Review
Hard to treat my dog with the costs so high

Inconsistent readings, difficult to juggle with dog not wanting to get cut, replacement sticks are crazy expensive!

great for beginners

great for beginners, easy to follow instructions. recommend it to anyone who has to test blood sugar in dog or cat regularly. save a lot on vet bill by doing it yourself. test numbers more accurate when animal is tested at home because they are less stressed.

Customer Review
Test kit has clear video instructions to assist with taking readings and monitoring sugar.

This ADVOCATE testing kit is a good value and has everything needed to take blood sugar readings of our cat/ dog friends.

Customer Q&A
Where do you prick for a blood sample, i tried ears and paws, i get nothing or too little to work

I do it on the elbow for my dog. I get more blood from there then from the ear or paws.

Customer Q&A
Can you use a different lancet with the kit? does a lancet come with the kit? what all comes with the kit?

You can use different lancets. I find the 26 gauge from CVS or anywhere else work better than the 21 gauge that come in a he kit when using on a daily basis. The 21 is larger and seems to cause a little more pain. I stick my dog on the inside of his lips so your results may be different. The kit comes with the meter, 25 strips, and around 25 lancets in 2 styles. The pen and 5 or so of a snap type. We don't use the pen, just the lancet by hand. I made several tests after using the Alpha Trak for years and found this one to be very close in readings. Hope this helps.
