Does anyone monitor their dogs blood pressure at home? Can you recommend a good machine? I've read the omron 7 wrist monitor is accurate with dogs.

I used a LifeSource UB-328 for Max. Someone on the tick list tested it against her vet's and it worked well (it's old, don't know if it's still available). IIRC, I had to use it on the inside of the leg and upside down to get the reading right. Max's BP was all over the place, so it was hard to guage. I used it high on indy's leg and hers was pretty consistent.

HI Lisa, sorry I am just seeing this. We were able to get her BP at the office and it was normal. I appreciate you answering and I apologize for not checking back sooner.
