Injecting your pet with insulin can feel complicated. To help simplify the process, we've created step by step instructions to show you how to prepare and administer your pet's insulin injections.
Be sure to read and follow the instructions that accompany the insulin prescribed by your veterinarian. For example, many types of insulin require of the vial to mix the contents before each use. Also make sure you're using the proper insulin syringe: U-40 and U-100 syringes are not interchangeable.
Once the syringe has been filled with the correct dose of insulin, take a moment to calm your pet. Giving the injection will go more smoothly if both you and your pet are relaxed. With some pets, it may help to give the ingection while they're eating. You may need to have someone help hold your pet so you can safely give the inhection.
In order to give your pet the correct dose of insulin, talk to your vet to make sure you're using the proper syringe for the insulin they've prescribed. U-40 insulin must be injected with a U-40 syringe, and U-100 insulin must be injected with a U-100 syringe. U-40 and U-100 syringes are not interchangeable.
To give your pet a comfortable and sterile injection, use a new insulin syringe for every injection. Never reuse syringes.
To help ensure the insulin remains sterile, you should wash your hands before handling the vial and always avoid touching the vial's rubber stopper with your fingers.
It's important to be precise and fill the syringe with the exact amount of air that matches the dose of insulin prescribed by your vet. If you inject too much air into the vial, pressure will build up and insulin will leak out. If you don't inject enough air into the vial, the insulin will contain air bubbles when drawn into the syringe.
With some pets, it may help to give the injection while they're eating this can distract them so that little or no restraint is needed and can make the experience less stressful.
UltiCare VetRx syringes are very thin and sharp so they won't hurt your pet especially if you insert the needle quickly but gently when giving the injection.
It's a good idea to write down the date and time of each injection. You may also want to make note of the injection site to help ensure you're not using the same location each time.
More than one member of your household should be familiar with the correct procedure for giving your pet an insulin injection. Make sure they also know the current dose prescribed by your vet and which injection sites to use.
