FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

QUESTIONS:
1. What is the most important thing I should know about Vetsulin Insulin?

2. How does Vetsulin Insulin work?

3. How should Vetsulin Insulin be given?

4. What should I be cautious of with Vetsulin Insulin?

5. What ingredients are in Vetsulin Insulin?

ANSWERS:
1. Diabetes mellitus is a disease where the body produces insufficient insulin. The low insulin levels may result in high blood glucose that could produce the following changes in a dog or cat: increased thirst, urination and appetite, weight loss, high levels of glucose in the urine, ketones in the urine, cloudy eyes and vision loss (diabetic cataracts). Vetsulin is not a cure for diabetes mellitus, it can control or eliminate many of the complications associated with the disease (such as excessive thirst, urination, and weight loss) and prevent development of life threatening ketoacidosis. Response varies from animal to animal but can be dramatic. In most cases improvement can be seen within a few days. In cats, treatment may lead to diabetes remission (insulin injections no longer required). If Vetsulin is discontinued or not given as directed, the signs of diabetes will likely return and life-threatening complications such as ketoacidosis may develop.

2. Insulin is a hormone that is naturally produced by the pancreas. When the body does not produce enough insulin, or when the insulin produced is not effective, it results in diabetes mellitus. Vetsulin is an aqueous suspension of porcine (pork) insulin that controls hyperglycemia in pets with diabetes.

3. Vetsulin is administered subcutaneously (SQ) using a U-40 insulin syringe for the 10 ml vial. Use of an insulin syringe other than a U-40 syringe for the 10 ml vial will result in incorrect dosing. Shake the vial until a homogeneous, uniformly milky suspension is obtained. For dogs and cats of all weights, it should be administered according to your veterinarian’s instructions using a U-40 syringe or VetPen only.
