OMNIS HEALTH INTRODUCES GLUCOPAW™ DIABETES TESTING SYSTEM DESIGNED ESPECIALLY FOR CATS AND DOGS.
Delivers Accurate, Safe, Confident Testing of Dogs and Cats With
NASHVILLE, TN – December XX, 2015 – Omnis Health, a diabetes category leader in innovative, value driven blood glucose monitoring systems, today announced the launch of the GlucoPawÔBlood Glucose Monitoring System. With GlucoPaw, pet owners now have a system specifically designed to help them accurately, easily, affordably, and safely test their “best friends” glucose levels to help ensure long, healthy, happy lives.
80 million U.S. households own a cat or dog.1 One in every 100 to
500 cats and dogs will be diagnosed with diabetes.2 That’s a total of more than 350,000 cats and 150,000 dogs who have diabetes. Canine and feline diabetes can almost always be successfully managed when treated with insulin. With regular testing and correct treatment, pets with diabetes can live a normal and healthy life. An accurate and safe blood glucose monitoring system is a critical tool to assist pet owners in helping to monitor and manage their pet’s glucose levels.
“We recognized a critical need to introduce a blood glucose monitoring system specifically to support the needs of pet owners,” said Cathy Pereira, Executive Vice-President – Global Sales and Marketing. “Having a dog or cat with diabetes is tough enough. Monitoring and managing their diabetes shouldn’t add to the stress. The fact that GlucoPaw is designed especially for use with dogs and cats helps ensure more accurate results and certainly provides a higher level of confidence among pet owners.”
In 2015, pet owners will spend an estimated $14.39 billion on supplies and OTC medicine – $60 billion overall. That includes pet owners who regularly visit retail pharmacies to purchase insulin and other accessories to help them manage their pet’s diabetes. The GlucoPawÔ Blood Glucose Monitoring System represents another helpful tool that pet owners can access to monitor their pets’ diabetes.
The GlucoPaw Blood Glucose Meter provides results in six seconds, has a large, easy-to-read screen, and stores up to 300 tests in memory allowing users to track glucose levels over time. Obtaining accurate results only requires a small sample size, infringing less pain on the pets. The meter also features alternate site testing, to obtain accurate results from any of four different areas – paws, legs, ears, and lips.
GlucoPaw Blood Glucose Monitoring System comes in one complete kit, with the
GlucoPaw Meter, 50 GlucoPawÔ Test Strips, Lancing Device and 50 Lancets, Control Solution, Feline and Canine Code Keys, Compact Carrying Case, User’s Manual, Test Results Log Book, and a Quick Reference Guide.
