The starter kit includes a handy travel pouch that holds the VetPen, needles, needle remover, and insulin, as well as the dose selector adaptor and release button extension.nsulin pen to be used only with Caninsulin for diabetes - NO prescription required.
It is the first such device designed exclusively for use with Caninsulin in diabetic dogs and cats. Vet pen makes for easy handling, dosing and more rapid injection preparation. Measure doses simply by turning the dial to draw up the selected dose, then insert the needle through pet's skin and inject the insulin through the push of a button (which reduces the chance of dosing errors).
Not to be used with other types of insulin. The VetPen does not need to be refrigerated after a cartridge has been started, Caninsulin cartridges should be refrigerated and protected from light before opening, VetPen should always be stored or carried with the needle removed and the cap on. To clean the device, wipe with a damp cloth and do not immerse in water. Vet pen is reusable - prime the device before the use of each new cartridge and mix the insulin prior to each injection. When all the insulin has been used, you simply remove the empty cartridge and insert a new one.

Excellent purchase and so glad I finally did this. Took me a couple of days to get use to holding and finding best position for me. But so much easier than using syringes and my dog is so much happier. Correct dosage every time.
A simple way to administer the correct dose of insulin every time. My only gripe is that the pouch supplied to hold the Vetpen doesn't really work well for what it is supposed to contain.
Bought it to replace my pen I dropped. Excellent item......works well and easy to carry about when we go out.
I bought a Caninsulin VetPen a couple of years ago, after our dog Sadie developed Diabetes, and unfortunately dropped it on our stone tile floor whilst warming it under my arm. I used to keep it in the fridge unaware that once cartridge is placed in the VetPen it no longer needs to be refrigerated. I wasn't very good at using the syringes, so I had to get another VetPen. I just find it so much easier to use, and much quicker when you have a fidgeting dog. It's a saviour for me.
Excellent product. Makes it so easy to give my pet insulin. Just wish it was fall proof as every time my cat head butts me, it lands on the floor and it cracks and I'll need a new one :( Not good if you're clumsy like me.
