Helpful Tips:

It is best to give your cat's PROZINC injections at feeding time or just afterward. It is also best to give the injections at the same time every day, because it will help your cat maintain the most stable blood glucose levels. This will be easier to do if you stick closely to your feeding schedule. When you give your cat a PROZINC injection, make sure you use the correct type of syringe. PROZINC is a U-40 insulin, meaning that there are 40 units of insulin per milliliter (ml) of product. That is why PROZINC must be injected with a U-40 syringe. This is very important because using another type of syringe will deliver the wrong dose.

Pharmacists are standing by to offer Pet Parent counseling regarding prescription medication purchased from Allivet before and after dispensing. Pharmacists on duty are available Monday-Friday, 9:30AM - 5:30PM EST and will be on call Saturday 12:00PM - 4:00PM EST for consultation.

USE OF A SYRINGE OTHER THAN A U-40 SYRINGE WILL RESULT IN INCORRECT DOSING.
FOR SUBCUTANEOUS INJECTION IN CATS ONLY.
ProZinc insulin should be mixed by gently rolling the vial prior to withdrawing each dose from the vial. Using a U-40 insulin syringe, the injection should be administered subcutaneously on the back of the neck or on the side of the cat.
Always provide the Cat Owner Information Sheet with each prescription. The initial recommended ProZinc dose is 0.1 - 0.3 IU insulin/pound of body weight (0.2 - 0.7 IU/kg) every 12 hours. The dose should be given concurrently with or right after a meal. The veterinarian should re-evaluate the cat at appropriate intervals and adjust the dose based on both clinical signs and glucose nadirs until adequate glycemic control has been attained. In the effectiveness field study, glycemic control was considered adequate if the glucose nadir from a 9-hour blood glucose curve was between 80 and 150 mg/dL and clinical signs of hyperglycemia such as polyuria, polydipsia, and weight loss were improved.
Further adjustments in the dosage may be necessary with changes in the cat’s diet, body weight, or concomitant medication, or if the cat develops concurrent infection, inflammation, neoplasia, or an additional endocrine or other medical disorder.
