Product description
What is PZI VET? PZI VET is a mixture of 90% beef and 10% pork insulin that is used to control hyperglycemia (Diabetes mellitus) in cats. PZI VET requires a prescription from your veterinarian. For: Cats Benefits: • Long duration of action • Beef insulin is closest to cat insulin for most effective results How it works: Insulin is a hormone that is naturally produced by the pancreas. When the body does not produce enough insulin, or when the insulin produced is not effective, it results in diabetes. PZI (Protamine Zinc Insulin) is insulin combined with zinc and protamine (a protein extracted from salmon testes), which slowly releases insulin into your cat’s bodily tissue. Cautions: Insulin requires refrigeration. Overnight shipping is required. The vial should be gently rolled to re-suspend the insulin before each use, not shaken. PZI VET insulin should appear uniformly cloudy or milky after re-suspending. Use PZI VET with U-40 syringes only. Use of a syringe other than a U-40 syringe will result in incorrect dosing. Before using PZI Vet, tell your veterinarian if your cat has any other medical conditions, or if your cat takes any other prescription or over-the-counter medications, including vitamins, minerals, and herbal supplements.

Before using PZI VET, tell your veterinarian if your cat has any other medical conditions, or if your cat takes any other prescription or over the counter medications, including vitamins, minerals, and herbal supplements.

Dispose of all syringes in an appropriate puncture-resistant disposal container. Dosage regimens of PZI VET will vary among patients. The recommended starting doe is 0.1 to 0.3 units per lb every 12 to 24 hours. This dose should be adjusted based on changes in blood glucose levels and resolution of clinical signs.
