The VMD has been informed that, for the foreseeable future, there will be no further supplies of the following Pfizer Insuvet products:

Pfizer has very recently contacted all wholesale purchasers of the Insuvet range to make them aware of this lack of stock and provided contact details in case they have any specific questions regarding the management of any diabetic cases.
The only other UK authorised veterinary medicinal product containing insulin is Caninsulin (Intervet/Schering Plough). Veterinary surgeons should contact Intervet/Schering-Plough’s veterinary support group directly on 01908 685685 for specific advice for how to switch a case from Insuvet to Caninsulin.
