Product Details
Doses of insulin are measured in units. Use Vetsulin with U-40 syringes only. Use of a syringe other than a U-40 syringe will result in incorrect dosing.100ct/Box

Your veterinarian will determine the amount of insulin needed (based on the weight of your dog, clinical signs such as water consumption, and laboratory results), instruct you on proper storage and handling, show you how to draw the insulin from the bottle, and instruct you on how to administer the injection. Once you can do this correctly, your veterinarian will provide you with everything you need to care for your dog at home. Vetsulin should be administered with a U-40 insulin syringe according to the following instructions:

Preparing the Dose:

  • Wash your hands
  • Remove the Vetsulin bottle from the refrigerator and mix by gently rolling the bottle between your hands (do not shake).
  • Carefully remove the cap from the needle.
  • Using a U-40 insulin syringe, pull the plunger back to draw air into the syringe to equal the Vetsulin dose.
  • Insert the syringe into the bottle and inject the air into the bottle.
  • Turn the bottle and syringe upside down. Making sure the tip of the needle is in the Vetsulin, withdraw the correct dose into the syringe.
  • Before removing the needle from the bottle, check the syringe for any air bubbles. If bubbles are present, hold the syringe straight up and tap its side until the bubbles float to the top.
    Push them out with the plunger and withdraw the correct dose.
  • Remove the needle from the bottle, being careful to not inject yourself.

Giving the injection:

  • Injections should be given just under the skin (subcutaneously) 2-5cm (1-2 inches) from the midline of the back (middle of your dog’s back running from tail to head), varying from just behind the shoulder blade to slightly in front of the hipbone.
  • The injection site should be alternated between your dog’s left and right side.
  • Using your free hand, pinch up a fold of skin, insert the needle into the center of the fold as instructed by your veterinarian, and push the plunger in as far as it will go.
  • Pull the needle out being careful to not inject yourself.
  • Dispose of the syringe in an appropriate manner (sharps/biohazard disposal).
