Nonmedicinal ingredients (per ml): zinc chloride 0.08 mg, sodium acetate trihydrate 1.36 mg, sodium chloride 7.0 mg and methyl parahydroxybenzoate 0.1% (as a preservative).

INDICATIONS: For control of hyperglycemia associated with diabetes mellitus in dogs and cats.

ADMINISTRATION: With vials, the use of U-40 insulin syringes is strongly recommended to ensure accurate dosing. The cartridge is designed to be used only with VetPen ™ and 29 G / 12 mm disposable needles. VetPen ™ comes with a leaflet with detailed instructions to follow.

In the case where the suspended particles have settled during the standby period, the product must be mixed again, this time gently, before use, to maintain a homogeneous, uniformly milky suspension.

Rotate the cartridge up and down at least 10 times until the insulin appears uniformly milky.

Do not use if lumps, particles or flocculation are visible after mixing.

The contents should be used within 6 weeks (vials) or 28 days (cartridges) and stored below 25 ° C after the first dose has been administered

Inject subcutaneously 2 to 5 cm from the dorsal midline on alternate sides, varying from the back of the scapula to the mid-lumbar region.
