Prescription items are NON-RETURNABLE and NON REFUNDABLE
VetSulin Insulin 
VetSulin (porcine insulin zinc suspension) is the only FDA-approved veterinary product for the management of diabetes mellitus in both dogs and cats. VetSulin is indicated for the reduction of hyperglycemia and hyperglycemia-associated clinical signs in dogs and cats with diabetes mellitus.
As a lente insulin, Vetsulin is classified as intermediate-acting insulin. It is an aqueous suspension of 40 IU/mL of highly purified porcine insulin, consisting of 35% amorphous and 65% crystalline zinc insulin. Unlike human insulin, porcine insulin has the same amino acid sequence as canine insulin, making it less likely for dogs to develop anti-insulin antibodies.
For use:
Dogs & cats

Active ingredient(s):
porcine insulin zinc suspension
VetSulin should not be used in dogs or cats known to have a systemic allergy to pork or pork products. Make sure to tell your veterinarian what other medication or supplements you are giving your pet. Dietary changes may also affect insulin requirements. Quite often your veterinarian may prescribe two different medications, even if a drug interaction may occur. In this case, your veterinarian may vary the dose and/or monitor your pet more closely. The following drug interactions that may occur with insulin include Beta-adrenergic blockers, clonidine, risperidone, and digitoxin. Drugs that may increase the hypoglycemic activity of insulin (resulting in low blood sugar) include captopril, enalapril, alcohol, anabolic steroids, beta-adrenergic blockers, MAOI's, guanethidine, phenylbutazone, sulfinpyrazone, sulfonamides, tetracycline, and aspirin, or other salicylates. Drugs that may decrease the hypoglycemic activity of insulin (resulting in high blood sugar) include epinephrine, estrogen/progesterone combinations, furosemide, glucocorticoids, isoniazid, phenothiazine derivatives, thiazide diuretics, and thyroid hormones. Serum potassium levels can fluctuate in combination with digoxin and insulin and additional monitoring may be needed. Contact your veterinarian if your pet experiences any unusual reactions when different medications are given together. Allergic reactions to medications may occur. Be sure to inform your veterinarian if your pet has any known drug sensitivities or allergies. If your pet displays symptoms of an allergic reaction, call your veterinarian immediately or go to a veterinary emergency clinic. Symptoms may include but are not limited to swollen lips, tongue, face, airways; difficulty breathing; agitation; profuse salivation; vomiting; widespread hives and itching.
Side effects:
Possible side effects of insulin therapy may include hypoglycemia. Signs include hunger, nervousness, vocalization, anxiety, muscle tremors, ataxia, and papillary dilation. If there are signs of hypoglycemia, offer the pet some food or oral dextrose. A positive response should occur within one to two minutes. Prolonged hyperglycemia can result in seizures, coma, and death. Severe hypoglycemic signs require prompt veterinary intervention. Other side effects may occur. If you notice anything unusual, contact your veterinarian.
VetSulin insulin should be administered as directed by your veterinarian. Your veterinarian will determine the correct dose of insulin need for your pet by means of a blood glucose test. Follow your veterinarian's instructions as doses may vary over time. Injections should be given subcutaneously, just under the skin. Be sure to rotate injection sites to prevent skin problems at the injection site. Pinch a fold in the skin to create a small space for the needle. Insert the needle into the center of the fold as instructed by the veterinarian. Inject the drug by pushing the plunger as far as it will go. Withdraw the needle and be careful to not stick yourself. Dispose of the needle immediately in a proper sharps disposal container.

Shan G on Sep 17, 2018
Does the insulin have to be kept cold? I left it out overnight
Irene D on Aug 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it does need to be refrigerated. If it's a full bottle, I would give your pet its normal dose & check glucose level in 6 hrs. If glucose is abnormally high, then you will need to replace it. I would probably replace it just to be sure of its potency though. Hope this helps. You could call your vet also to see what they say.

How do you toss the needles? Does it take long to get used to injecting as an owner? My beagle was just diagnosed. Do you use a healthier dog food now?
A shopper on Jan 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I bring the needles back to my vet - yours should also probably take them back for disposal, if not I would check with the pharmacies. At first it was hard to tell if I was getting the needle under the skin or just alot of fur (my aussie has a very thick under coat), but once you do it for a while you get the feel of it and it gets easier. Unfortunately the dog starts to get more sensitive. I start shots along the front of his torso and work my way back as the week goes on, and switch right and left sides for morning and night so that I am not hitting the same place everyday. I have noticed the higher up toward the back is less sensitive, but that might be different with each individual animal. I have switched to a healthier dog food - finding one that doesn't break the bank is hard. Right now I am feeding him Merrick Grain free and his blood sugar was right on the mark last time I had him tested (it went from 600 the day he was diagnosed to 74 six weeks later). He gets snap peas, carrots and low carb treats a few times a day. A great site to help with food is dog food advisor. It has a list of dog food brands A-Z in the menu which gives an immediate breakdown of % protein, fats and carbs (should be around 40, 30, 30 respectively) and also a list of ingredients, any controversial ingredients, and any recalls or problems that the company may have had in the past. It has been a great help for me in the past couple of months.Giving the shots can be hard until you see the results - I was blaming old age on my dogs lack of energy (he is 10). but since I have changed his diet and have been giving him shots his energy is back and he noticeably happier - Good luck

Lona O on Nov 24, 2017

can vetsulin be picked up at a reno nv pharmacy?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm unsure exactly the question you are asking. We ship our prescriptions orders directly to our Customer's home. If you have a pharmacy in Reno, NV that carries the product, you would take your prescription to them to have filled.
If the bottle of Vetsulin is only .25 lb, why am I being charged an Oversize Charge of $15.95?
A shopper on Aug 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The oversize fee is due to the way the VetSulin must be shipped. Insulin is shipped via 2 day air Styrofoam cooler with cooling packs to keep the vaccines cool.
