Vetsulin for Cats and Dogs

Dogs and cats suffering from diabetes mellitus can’t metabolize sugar in their bodies properly.  Injectable Vetsulin gives your pet the insulin required to convert glucose into the energy your pet needs.

Vetsulin VetPen Insulin Cartridges

Vetsulin is a porcine insulin that is commonly used in the treatment of diabetes. Insulin is a hormone that is naturally produced by the pancreas that converts sugar (glucose) to energy. Diabetes occurs when the body does not produce insulin or is unable to use insulin properly.

This vetsulin is contained within a cartridge that is designed exclusively for use in the VetPen. The VetPen is an automatic insulin delivery device that features a dial for dosing and replaceable needles. Consult with your pet’s veterinarian before administering this product and follow their specific guidelines for use. This product is sold in a pack of 10 x 2.7mL vials that are measured 40 units/ml (U-40). For use only with VetPen.
