WHAT MAKES ALPHATRAK 2 THE TOP-RATED PET GLUCOMETER

  • AlphaTRAK 2 is the portable blood glucose monitor most veterinarians use in the clinic1
  • Take comfort in knowing that you're using the #1 recommended, #1 sold and #1 used portable pet glucometer among veterinarians.
  • Calibrated for dogs' and cats' glucose distribution
  • The AlphaTRAK 2 meter is designed to account for the differences in the distribution of glucose within the blood of dogs and cats, so results are accurate, reliable and easy to understand.
  • No calculations or conversions required
  • Glucose readings with AlphaTRAK 2 are instant, easy to read and ready to communicate to your veterinarian. No math required!
  • Meter provides accurate blood glucose readings in seconds
  • With proper use, results are ready before you can say "good boy" or "good girl."
  • Requires very small blood sample
  • Are you a little blood shy? Don't worry! The amount of blood required to get an accurate reading is only .3 microliters - this means fewer re-sticks - much smaller than that of other pet glucometers.
  • Easy to use
  • Your veterinarian should help you perform your first blood glucose reading in the clinic, with your pet, to help familiarize you with the process. From our experience, by the third time, most pet owners are pros.
  • More accurate than human meters for pet diabetes2
  • The way glucose, or blood sugar, is distributed in pets' blood is very different from the way glucose is distributed in human blood. Human meters do not account for this difference and therefore are not accurate if used for pet blood glucose monitoring. AlphaTRAK is designed specifically for dogs and cats for accurate and reliable blood glucose readings.

WHY TEST YOUR PET'S BLOOD GLUCOSE AT HOME?

At-home blood glucose testing is an important step in helping your diabetic dog or cat live an active and happy life with diabetes.

At-home monitoring:

  • Reduces stress for more accurate readings, based on pet's normal daily conditions
    Clinic visits can be stressful for pets and may cause blood sugar levels to spike or drop.3 Readings taken under normal daily conditions provide a more accurate representation of typical glucose levels.
  • Provides accurate data your veterinarian needs to make informed treatment decisions
    To accurately assess your pet's treatment plan, your veterinarian needs to know blood glucose levels based on normal daily activity. But he or she couldn't possibly personally perform all the blood glucose tests for every diabetic patient. By taking blood glucose readings at home, you become your veterinarian's best ally for a successful diabetes treatment plan.
  • Helps identify diabetic complications immediately
    At-home testing allows you to identify diabetic complications before they turn serious, which could also help avoid stressful and costly emergency room visits.

Here are some tips for successful at-home monitoring:

  • Test your pet's blood sugar under normal daily conditions. A pet's blood sugar can spike or dip depending on several factors. These include:
    • Eating
    • Exercise
    • Anxiety, such as being left alone or having company in the house
    • Moments of activity, like chasing a squirrel or active play
    • A visit to the veterinarian
  • Communicate with your veterinarian.
    You are not alone! Pet diabetes management takes teamwork, and your veterinarian and clinic staff are your best teammates. Never hesitate to reach out to your veterinarian's office with any questions or concerns. Follow your veterinarian's treatment plan closely and always communicate results as directed. Good communication is key to successful diabetes management.
  • Stay positive! Pet diabetes is manageable!
    Thousands of AlphaTRAK 2 users will tell you, you can do this! Monitoring your pet's diabetes will take effort. But it is the best way to ensure your dog or cat maintains quality of life with diabetes. Before long, testing will become second nature and you could potentially add years to the life of your best friend!
