To avoid dosing errors, VetPen must be used with 40 IU/mL, 2.7 mL Vetsulin cartridges.

In dogs, the labeled starting Vetsulin dose is 0.5 IU insulin/kg of body weight. This dose should be given once daily concurrently with or right after a meal.

For cats, the initial recommended dose of Vetsulin is 1 to 2 IU per injection. Cats should be started on twice-daily injections of Vetsulin at 12-hour intervals.

After a single use, needles should be disposed of in approved sharps or biohazard containers.

Giving the Injection

  • Injection should be given under the skin, 3/4 to 2 inches from the middle of the dog’s back, varying from behind the shoulder blades to the middle of the back region and alternating sides.
  • Remove needle cover and protective caps. Insert the needle, then push the release button toward the pen needle and hold it in place until the start line on the dose selector returns to the arrow on the pen body. Take care to not impede the motion of the dose selector.
  • After the dose selector has returned to the start line, wait a minimum of 5 seconds before withdrawing the needle from the skin.
  • If insulin leaks out of the pen after injection, check the cartridge for small air bubble using the VetPen window. Do not attempt to re-dose.
