Caninsulin® is the world’s number one insulin for cats and dogs.1 Now, also offering the most comprehensive package of diabetes support for veterinary practices in the UK, Caninsulin®& VetPen® ‘Support at every step’ helps veterinary teams to deliver effective diabetes care.

Clinical support is delivered through stabilisation and serial glucose protocols, as well as discounted fructosamine testing and additional technical support on-demand, by fax, email and phone.

Diabetes is a complex condition to manage and each patient can present different challenges. The client plays a central role in diabetes care, so the programme also includes an owner’s pack that explains everything the owner needs to know, in addition to comprehensive online information.

The use of the medical delivery device Caninsulin VetPen® has revolutionised diabetes care for pets – enabling pet owners to overcome injection fear, improving dosing accuracy and comfort. It was recently awarded an ‘Easy to Give’ award by International Cat Care in recognition of its contribution to removing barriers to compliance. Practice Diabetes Adviser online training includes VetPen® training and veterinary professionals can complete a total of six free modules to qualify as a Pet Diabetes Advisor, earning a badge and certificate.
