This is a prescription item and will be sent once a valid prescription has been received and approved by our vet.
Caninsulin®(40iu/ml) treats insulin deficiency (diabetes mellitus) in dogs and cats. The active ingredient is porcine insulin, a naturally occurring hormone produced in the pancreas.
Diabetes Mellitus is a common endocrine disease caused by a deficiency of insulin. As a result of this deficiency, glucose cannot be transported from the bloodstream into the cells.
The treatment will be divided into 'stabilisation' and 'maintenance'. First, the correct dose must be determined, and a suitable routine must be finalised for both the pet and the owner (stabilisation). Then, the pet is monitored regularly, and if diabetes evolves, the medication can be changed accordingly (maintenance).
Caninsulin®is to be given via injection and administered with Caninsulin®0.5ml or 1ml syringes (these can also be purchased on our website).
Caninsulin® (40iu/ml) is available in the following size:
- 10ml Bottle
