After three phone calls to Walmart customer service to receive said gift card reimbursement and a low supply of strips, I'm about done with the Relion Micro. I called Mr. Vet and asked what meter he uses thinking he'd say Alpa Trak 2. So I was very surprised when he said Embrace by Omnis and that he bought it at the pharmacist across the street (small town). When he compares with the big blood machine, it's just a point or two off. It takes a bigger drop of blood than the Micro, but I'm getting better at ear pricking. Both the meter and strips are inexpensive. Anyone have experience with the Embrace?
