Description

The AlphaTRAK 2 is an accurate, easy to use way of monitoring your pet's blood glucose from home while using the same accurate device that your vet will use. The meter is specifically for dogs and cats, and only requires a tiny blood sample which provides results in seconds.

The AlphaTRAK 2 is available from VioVet as a starter kit which provides all you need to get fast results without the high vet bills. We also supply spare test strips and lancets to allow you to keep testing without having to by another full kit.

Why Use AlphaTrak 2?

The goal of pet diabetes management is to control glucose levels and minimise complications. Blood glucose monitoring is a way to assess the diabetes treatment plan and make adjustments, if needed. Blood glucose monitoring at home allows you to measure your pet’s glucose levels when they are experiencing their regular daily routine. This provides your vet with accurate data to help assess the treatment plan.

So, why specifically AlphaTRAK 2?

Humans, dogs, and cats all have different make-ups of blood, specifically the difference in the ratios of glucose in plasma and red blood cells. While dogs have 87.5% of glucose in plasma and cats have 93%, humans only have 58%. This is significantly lower. If you use a human meter on a dog or cat, it assumes human glucose distribution in blood to calculate glucose levels, which may result in underestimation of blood glucose concentrations and inaccurate readings.

AlphaTRAK 2 Starter Kit

The AlphaTRAK 2 system is exactly the same kit your vet uses to get fast accurate results but at home. The AlphaTRAK Starter Kit includes the supplies you need to get started:

  • Instructional DVD: Learn more about pet diabetes, getting a blood sample and meter setup
  • Lancing device and (30) lancets
  • AlphaTRAK 2 meter and (25) test strips
  • Two user's guides
  • Carrying case
  • Diabetes Diary

AlphaTRAK 2 Spare Test Strips

AlphaTRAK 2 Test Strips are for use with the AlphaTRAK glucose monitoring systems designed specifically for cats and dogs. These new strips have an improved design with an angled sample area that makes it easier to position the target area to the blood drop for fast wicking.

AlphaTRAK 2 Spare Lancets

AlphaTRAK 2 Lancets are for use with the AlphaTRAK glucose monitoring systems designed specifically for cats and dogs. Designed to be safe and sterile, the spare lancets are tiny needles that are used to prick the skin and draw small amounts of blood for testing.

Do I need a new bottle of test solution with a new pack of test strips

  • Veterinary Surgeon

No you do not require a new bottle of control solution with a new pack of test strips. You can continue to use the same bottle until it runs out or has reached its expiry date.
