As a handheld device it can be used in-practice, in the field or at home as a portable meter of blood glucose levels in cats, dogs and horses. The g-Pet PLUS Blood Glucose Meter has a memory capable of storing 500 results and a large LCD display.

A 0.7µl sample of venous or capillary blood is required to produce highly accurate glucose results within 5 seconds. A built-in confirmation window can show the user whether the sample is of sufficient volume before the test goes ahead.

The alarm notification system enables the user to set regular reminders for testing. This is a useful feature when monitoring dog diabetes and cat diabetes.

Pet owners can ask their vet about the g-Pet PLUS Glucose Meter or contact us to find their nearest stockist.

  • g-Pet PLUS Meter
  • Manual
  • AAA Batteries (2)
  • Test strip insert
  • Test strips (10)
  • Control solution insert
  • Code strip
  • Quick reference guide

Why Use the g-Pet PLUS Veterinary Glucose Meter Rather Than a Human Glucose Meter?

Human glucometers are not always accurate when measuring glucose levels in animals. This is because red blood cell size and the distribution of glucose within the blood differs from species to species. A proportion of glucose is contained within the red blood cells and the remainder in the surrounding plasma.

Humans have a higher haematocrit compared to cats, dogs and horses, as well as larger red blood cells. Therefore, the distribution of glucose within plasma is proportionally much lower in humans compared to these animals as a larger portion of glucose is contained within the red blood cells.

Subsequently, these differences in glucose distribution have a bearing on the glucose result when testing animals with a meter designed for human use as false results are reported in some instances.

Species Specific Calibration

The g-Pet PLUS Veterinary Glucose Meter is calibrated specifically for use in cats, dogs and horses. Each g-Pet PLUS meter contains all relevant calibration information to ensure an accurate result is reported for each species. Vets no longer need to persist with inaccurate human meters as there is now a low cost, veterinary specific alternative.

Novavet Blood Ketone Meter

NovaVet measures blood beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHBA), the gold standard for detecting subclinical ketosis. NovaVet provides accurate, quantitative results for the early detection of subclinical ketosis in dairy cattle and diabetic ketoacidosis in companion animals.


  • Ready to use, disposable biosensor
  • No calibration required
  • Simple test procedure in the field
  • Accurate blood ketone results in 10 seconds
  • Small sample volume
  • Stores 400 results
  • Corrects for HCT
  • Eliminates interfering substances
  • Large results display is easy to read in darkened setting
  • Meter non-volatile memory stores up to 400 test results
  • Two levels of quality control check solutions provide verification of meter accuracy
  • Rugged carrying case provides convenient transport and storage of the meter, glucose and ketone test strips and quality control solutions
  • Corrects result for HCT
  • Eliminate interfering substances

Blood BHBA is the gold standard for detecting subclinical ketosis in dairy cattle. A blood BHBA concentration of 1.2 – 1.4 mmol/L is an important threshold for detection of subclinical ketosis and for predicting health risk in early lactation cows.

  • NovaVet’s BHBA biosensors provide accurate analysis in this subclinical range
  • Blood BHBA offers better sensitivity and specificity for ketosis than urine or milk ketone testing








Accurate, Quantitative BHBA Results

NovaVet provides accuracy comparable to reference laboratory testing for BHBA. Quantitative BHBA results eliminate subjective interpretation of semi-quantitative colour charts used in milk or urine ketone testing.

Simple Test Procedure in the Field

  1. A very small drop of blood is obtained from the tail vein using a 20 or 22 gauge needle and vacuum tube
  2. A pre-calibrated biosensor is inserted into the meter. No calibration coding step is required for the meter or the biosensor
  3. A tiny drop of blood (0.8 microliters) is added to the end of the strip. BHBA results are ready in 10 seconds

Early Detection of Subclinical Ketosis Can Prevent Economic Loss

Subclinical ketosis is defined as abnormal concentrations of circulating ketones (primarily beta-hydroxybutyrate) in the absence of clinical signs of ketosis. Early detection of ketosis in its subclinical stage enables introduction of feeding strategies to prevent clinical ketosis, cow malaise and economic loss to the dairy producer.

Clinical Ketosis in Early Lactation Dairy Cattle – Economic Loss to Dairy Farmers

The transition of dairy cows through calving and commencement of lactation is a critical time and is a strong determinant of the health and performance of the cow through the full lactation period. All transition cows are at risk of clinical ketosis, characterised by partial anorexia, poor appetite and signs of nervous dysfunction including abnormal licking, poor coordination and abnormal gait and bellowing. Clinical ketosis causes economic loss to the dairy farmer due to:

  • Decreased milk production, poor milk quality
  • Mastitis, risk of displaced abonasum
  • Metritis, impaired fertility
  • Increased herd removals and treatment costs

Optimise Herd Management

NovaVet provides simple, accurate and economical detection of ketosis in a herd. Herd management is improved when compared to relying on the dairy producer’s subjective perception of clinical signs of ketosis, or less sensitive and specific milk urine ketone tests. Herd management benefits of NovaVet BHBA testing include:

  • Early identification and monitoring of changes in transition cow performance
  • Protection of herd milk production and quality
  • Quantification of herd prevalence of ketosis
  • Avoidance of treatment costs for clinical ketosis
  • Monitoring and management of herd feeding program
  • Protection of herd reproductive performance
  • Reduction in herd culling rates

Test Individual At-Risk Cattle

NovaVet BHBA testing can be targeted for potential problem or high-risk cows. Individual testing of at risk cows can identify ketosis early in the disease process so that more severe clinical disease can be avoided with clinical intervention.
