Product Info

What is VetPen?

VetPen is the world's first insulin pen designed specifically for use in cats and dogs with diabetes. Similar to human insulin pens, VetPen is an automatic insulin delivery pen that makes giving your pet insulin injections quicker, easier and more accurate. The VetPen Starter Kit comes with a VetPen, 28 ct package of VetPen Needles (12 mm, 29 g), a Travel Pouch, a Needle Remover, a Dose Selector Adaptor, and an instruction insert. VetPen 8 delivers 0.5 IU-8IU in 1/2 unit increments, and VetPen 16 delivers 1 IU-16 IU in 1 unit increments. VetPen can only be used with VetPen Needles. When needed, VetPen Needles (12 mm, 29 g) is available in a 100 ct refill package.

The VetPen can only be used with the Vetsulin Insulin 2.7 ml cartridges (sold separately). Vetsulin Insulin (porcine insulin zinc suspension) treats diabetic dogs and cats by controlling the levels of glucose in the blood.

VetPen, Vetsulin 2.7 ml cartridges, and VetPen Needles require a prescription from your veterinarian. Vetsulin Insulin requires refrigeration and must be kept at refrigerator temperatures at all times. To ensure proper temperature, it requires overnight shipping at an additional cost.

How does VetPen work?

VetPen is an ideal tool for dogs and cats with diabetes. It is to be used solely with Vetsulin Insulin 2.7 ml cartridges. When used according to your veterinarian's instructions, these syringes play a key role in helping to manage your pet's diabetes.

Do not immerse VetPen in water. Clean with a damp cloth. Use contents of Vetsulin Insulin 2.7 ml cartridge within 42 days of the first puncture. VetPen should only be used with Vetsulin 2.7 ml cartridges. Before each use, ensure that VetPen has been primed. Failure to do so can result in inaccurate dosing of your dog or cat. To avoid potential damage to VetPen, never dial a dose and push the release button without a cartridge in the cartridge holder. A new needle must be used for each injection. Use the Needle Remover (included with the VetPen starter kit) to safely remove and dispose of needles. VetPen has been tested to perform accurately for up to 2 years (2 doses/day) or 4 years (1 dose/day). Vetsulin Insulin 2. ml cartridges require refrigeration. Overnight shipping is required and additional shipping charges are applicable.If you suspect your pet is experiencing an allergic reaction, contact your veterinarian immediately.

How to Use

VetPen Directions:

  • Prior to loading Vetsulin cartridges, shake the cartridge until a homogeneous, uniformly milky suspension is obtained. Do not use the product if visible clumps or white particles persist after shaking.
  • Pull off the VetPen cap and unscrew the VetPen body from the cartridge holder.
  • Check to ensure that the internal plunger is fully retracted. If it's not retracted, rewind the internal plunger until it is fully retracted.
  • Load the insulin cartridge into the holder metal cap in first, and screw the cartridge holder firmly onto the VetPen body.
  • Peel the protective film from a new VetPen Needle, and screw it straight onto the cartridge holder. Remove the outer protective needle cap from the VetPen Needle.
  • Replace the VetPen cap and shake until a homogeneous, uniformly milky suspension is obtained.
  • For proper dosing, remove the air from the cartridge (prime) by dialing one unit on the dose selector. Remove the pen cap and hold the VetPen with the needle pointing up. Tap the cartridge gently with your fingers to push up air bubbles. Push and hold the release button. Repeat until the air bubble is gone and insulin drips out of the needle tip.
  • Turn the dial to the correct unit and inject into your pet 2-5 cm from the dorsal midline, varying from behind the shoulder to the mid-back region and alternating sides. Hold the needle in place for at least 5 seconds after the dial line returns to the arrow during injection to ensure proper and accurate dosage.

A new needle must be used and primed for each injection.
