I was able to get a reading tonight on Mallie with my Bravo monitor. She was sooooo good, she just sat in my lap (at the kitchen table) and was purring and didn’t mind the 5 or 6 pokes I had to do to get enough blood. I ended up poking her on the inside of the ear where there was less fur. I don’t have any ointment in my house ♀️ to keep the blood from being soaked up by the fur, so the inside of the ear work well. I’ve tested my blood on the Bravo (and on the OneTouch Ultra Mini I got from my coworker this week) and 2 out of the 3 readings there was a 0.1 difference between the two numbers. The other time there was a 0.9 difference (the bravo being lower) between my two numbers. It seems that the OneTouch Ultra needs a bigger sample. I’m going to keep testing myself until I feel confident that I’m getting consistent results. Mallie’s reading was 21.5. I cried happy tears that I was able to get a reading. I’m so happy that I was able to do it! We have our appointment tomorrow at our new vet’s office in the afternoon and I’m so happy that I’ll have at least one number to give him. I’m going to try again tomorrow in the morning before work. Having two numbers would be awesome!
