Default Meters

Did any of you know that there's a difference between the GlucoPet and GlucoVet meters?

GlucoVet

"GlucoVet is recommended for Veterinarians and customers with medium and/or large animals. More accurate readings than the GlucoPet, for glucose values of 300 mg/dL or higher."

From what's written on the GlucoVet page, the GlucoPet meter must be less accurate in interpreting higher readings than the GlucoPet meter. The GlucoPet and GlucoVet meters have separate strips also:
