Caninsulin Vet Pen Cartridges are for use with the Caninsulin Vet Pen.

Each cartridge contains Caninsulin 40 iu/ml Suspension for injection each ml contains 40 units of insulin. The liquid is a white to nearly white suspension.

The cartridges also contain mixing balls to ensure consistent dosing, and help to remove any problems with air bubbles which can lead to incorrect dosage when using the vials.

Cartridges are sold in packs of 10. Each cartridge contains 2.7ml of insulin.

These cartridges require a Vet Pen in order to be used.

Caninsulin Vet Pen is a breakthrough device for diabetes control. Vet Pen is designed to make giving insulin injections to your dog or cat easier, quicker and more accurate. The pen is a convenient alternative for people who are uncomfortable with, or dislike using, syringes. The pen uses cartridges, meaning you do not need to draw up insulin from an individual vial, and it also comes with a carry case this makes it much easier to inject your diabetic dog or cat with insulin when you are away from home.

The Vet Pen has a precision dial to help you administer an accurate dose of insulin every time. The dial also makes the insulin dose easy to change.

The design of this pen makes it easy to handle and it is particularly beneficial for pet owners with unsteady hands, poor eyesight or arthritis.

By having the insulin contained within a cartridge inside a sturdy pen it reduces the chances of any insulin spillages or breakages.

Special Instructions & Dose

This is a temperature sensitive product so will be sent via a next day courier service. Please note that the delivery does require a signature on delivery. If the delivery is unsuccessful for any reason the product will not be useable as packaging secures the product at the correct temperature for 24 hours.

Caninsulin should be administered once or twice daily as prescribed, by injection under the skin (subcutaneous injection).

Before used the first time the vial should be shaken thoroughly until a uniformly milky suspension is obtained. After this, the vial should be inverted several times before each use.

Before the product is administered owners should have a box of powdered glucose or some honey at home. Signs of hunger, increasing anxiety, unstable locomotion, muscle twitching, stumbling and disorientation indicate progression of hypoglycaemia, and glucose and food should be administered restore blood glucose levels.

Accidental self-injection can provoke clinical signs of hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar); if this occurs seek medical advice.
