About the GluCurve Pet CGM
The GluCurve Pet CGM is a Continuous Glucose Monitoring Systems for diabetic cats and dogs, consisting of an Applicator, Sensor, Transmitter, GluCurve App, and Veterinary Web Portal.
The Sensor is located inside the Applicator and once applied to a pet, the Sensor Electrode chemically reacts with glucose in the hypodermic interstitial fluid to generate an electrical signal. The electrical signal is analyzed to generates blood glucose values, which are sent to the GluCurve App where it is displayed for the pet owner and uploaded to the Veterinary Web Portal.
The GluCurve Pet CGM measures glucose levels every 3 minutes for a total of 480 readings each day, for up to 14 days. The monitor is equipped with built in memory that can store all 14 days of data to prevent the loss of readings when the pet owner is away from their pet. In addition, insulin injections and feeding times can be inputted into the GluCurve App which uploads the data to the Veterinary Web Portal. Inside the Veterinary Web portal, glucose readings are organized into time saving graphs and tables with additional features such as glucose curve comparisons and overlays, insulin dose calculators, best practice guidelines, and more.
