Description

Lantus “glargine” insulin is known as a "peakless" insulin, in that it is released slowly and at a constant rate. Abnormal peaks and valleys in blood sugar levels offers poor diabetic control. Lantus maintains steadier blood sugar levels which means less testing and less pain for you and your pet.

Uses

Insulin is used for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. Regular insulin is commonly used for stabilization of the diabetic pet and is the only formulation labeled for intravenous administration (IV); it is also administered by intramuscular (IM) and subcutaneous (SC) injection.

Possible Side Effects

Adverse reactions commonly associated with Lantus include hypoglycemia, allergic reactions, injection site reactions, lipodystrophy, pruritus, rash, edema and weight gain.

Drug & Food Interactions

Notify your veterinarian of any other medications, including vitamins and supplements, your pet is taking while receiving insulin.

Precautions

Do not inject insulin at the same site day after day or lipodystrophic reactions can occur. Do not change the pet's food, feeding schedule, or exercise schedule once regulated for that food and schedule. Do not use any insulin that has been frozen or exposed to direct heat or light. Make sure you are always using the appropriate type of syringe for the type of insulin you have.

This drug is FDA-approved for human use. However, it is common practice for veterinarians to prescribe such drugs for use in dogs and cats.

    What a relief

    By on

    This product is the one that has finally brought our cat back into good health and I'm so relieved that Chewy is now carrying it, because I trust them more than other vendors.
