Our customer asked:

Do you know if there is such a thing on the market as a Canine version, of the Human Insulin, Epipen?
My mums dog is now having to have 2 injections a day and I wondered if there was an easier way of measuring the dose of insulin, as in the human diabetic's insulin pen?

Our reply:

Yes there is the Caninsulin Vetpen available and this is on our website now. I have not used them personally, but I understand that they are simple enough. The insulin is supplied in Caninsulin Cartridges which makes it a bit more expensive, and the pen itself costs money, but they are designed for easy use and are becoming more popular.
