Lantus

Help control your cat’s diabetes mellitus with Lantus-brand insulin glargine. This injectable medication helps regulate blood sugar in cats. Normalized blood sugar can help your feline friend feel better day-to-day. 

  • Regulates blood sugar levels
  • Daily dosing
  • Formulated for subcutaneous injection

Lantus helps treat diabetes in cats by normalizing the glucose level in the blood. When your cat has a normal level of glucose in the blood the body works as it should and your cat may have fewer diabetic symptoms. Lantus is insulin glargine, a long-acting form of insulin formulated for injection underneath the skin.

  • Q:

    When using the Solo Star pen, do I have to prime it every time?
    Asked on 5/6/2015 by mccartanann from Holliston, MA

    1 answer

    • A:

      Yes, the manufacturer recommends that you dial a test dose of 2 units before each dose. Hold the pen with the needle pointing up and lightly tap the insulin reservoir so any air bubbles will rise to the top. This will help make the dose more accurate. Next, press in the injection button all the way to remove 2 units from the pen. If no insulin comes out, repeat this process 2 more times.

    Asked on 4/18/2015 by redman

  • Q:

    you state that you can't draw the insulin from the pen with a syringe. That is exactly what I've been doing. I don't think my pen has a needle and I don't use the counter. The vet provided me with the Lantus pen and syringes. is your pen different?
    Asked on 3/7/2015 by milo from Sioux Falls, SD, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Milo,

      The Lantus SoloStar pen supplied to you by your veterinarian is the same Lantus SoloStar pen that VetRxDirect dispenses to our patients. Lantus SoloStar is human use prescription insulin medication used for the management of diabetes. In humans, the insulin contained in the Lantus SoloStar pen is administered with a needle that is screwed onto the end of the pen. Lantus is available in either a multi-use vial or in the SoloStar pen. As animals usually require less insulin in the management of their diabetes than humans do, it is common practice to utilize the Lantus SoloStar pen and withdraw the insulin from the pen. This is done to be cost effective and decrease the amount of unused insulin remaining at the end of each month.

      Thank you,
      VetRxDirect

My cat uses insulin twice daily. I recently did more extensive research and confirmed that cats tolerate Lantus better than other insulins (cats have a faster metabolism so most insulin doesn't last as long and causes spiky glucose curves). Lantus lasts about 12 hours in a cat. The pen form is easy to draw from and keeps the insulin lasting much longer than the vial due to the lack of air, which denatures the proteins and spoils the insulin. VetRx has a great deal on this item, allowing a single pen purchase with great packaging for protection and sustained cool temperature and overnight shipping. They also have EXCELLENT customer service. They have found a new long-term customer. I love this kitty dearly and with this she is healthy, happy, and lives a normal life. (ok, except for getting pampered frequently.) :)

I purchased this insulin for my cat a month ago and it just isn't working for my cat and I am giving him injections twice daily with no good results. He is still urinating and drinking constantly and losing weight. My vet said that it worked for him when he was in for evaluation but it is just not working for me even with upping the dosage. I will have to try another type of insulin for my cat.

My cat was diagnosed a diabetic in Nov '14. I've been using the solstar pen solely for the insulin not the injectable feature. I buy separetly small needles which I use to pull out insulin n inject my cat. Works great and super easy to use.

My cat was diagnosed with diabetes last November and has been on Lantus to control it. Once the dose was perfected, he went from having neuropathy in his hind legs to moving around well, blood sugar is under control, and it's really easy to use.
