MSD Animal Health has introduced Caninsulin VetPen, the first insulin pen specifically designed for diabetic dogs and cats.
According to the company, this device features innovative technology that simplifies dosing and administration of insulin to make it easy for pet owners to accept and comply with their pets’ treatment.
Designed exclusively for use with Caninsulin, the VetPen’s sleek, ergonomic design makes it easier for pet owners to handle, and simpler and faster to deliver an insulin dose than with traditional insulin syringes and needles.
The precision instrumentation of the VetPen helps improve dosing accuracy. With the simplified dosing process of ‘dialling’ the prescribed dose, accuracy is less user-dependent and there is less opportunity for human error. It also minimises variance in dosing by providing multiple doses from a single cartridge.
Caninsulin VetPen also enhances insulin delivery safety by reducing the risk of accidental needle stick injuries, air bubbles, broken vials, and insulin spills that may occur when using syringes with needles.
“As the first and only insulin pen for dogs and cats, it represents a significant breakthrough in the veterinary world,” said Shoumik Das, marketing manager at MSD Animal Health.
He added: “We hope the ease of use that our advanced delivery technology offers helps make diabetes management both simpler and less intimidating for pet owners and client counseling easier for vets and nurses.”
