This item requires a vet's prescription
Caninsulin(40iu/ml) is for the treatment of insulin deficiency (diabetes mellitus) in dogs and cats. It is supplied in a 10ml vial or separately as 10 x 2.5ml vials and administered by injection using syringe. The active ingredient is porcine insulin which is a naturally occurring hormone produced in the pancreas.
Caninsulin is a prescription item and will be sent once a valid prescription is received. Please follow the instructions given by your vet.
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.
Store Caninsulin upright and keep refrigerated between 2 & 8°c. If transporting, always keep below 25°C to ensure its efficacy. During periods of hot weather dispatches may be temporarily delayed. Do not freeze.
Caninsulin is to be given via injection and to be administered with Caninsulin 0.5ml or 1ml syringes (these can also be purchased on our website). The treatment will be divided into "stabilisation" and "maintenance". First, the correct dose needs to be determined and a suitable routine needs to be finalised for both pet and owner (stabilisation). Then, the pet is monitored regularly and if the diabetes evolves, the medication can be changed accordingly (maintenance).
This item will only be dispatched Monday-Thursday.
