Hello! I’m Dr. Mike. Today we will learn the easy way to give your cat an insulin injection. It is important to understand that there are different concentrations of insulin. Therefore, you need to make sure you have the proper syringe. A U40 Insulin requires a U40 Syringe and a U100 Insulin requires a U100 Syringe. Today, we’re going to be using a ProZinc, a U40 Insulin made just for cats. Most people are little nervous the first time they give the injection. But it’s really not hard to do it. We will visit Liza and her diabetic cat to watch how it’s done.
When you’re ready to give the injection, place your cat on a stable surface and take a moment to pet your cat before you begin. The injection will be easiest if both of you are calm. Liza has already filled the syringe with Frankie’s correct doze. For more information on preparing your syringe, you can watch our VetVid video How to Prepare Insulin Syringe for your Diabetic Cat.
Decide where you’re going to inject your cat. You can give the injection in your cat’s side or in the back of you cats neck. Just make sure you don’t use the same spot each time. While you’re petting your cat, gently pull the fold of the skin at the spot you’ve chosen, like Liza’s doing. Now quickly insert the needle into the fold of the skin. The Insulin needle is very thin and sharp, so it won’t hurt your cat especially if you insert it quickly. Pull the plunger back a little bit to make sure no blood enters the syringe. If you do see some blood inside the syringe, you should throw it away and start over with a new syringe. Push the plunger all the way in and then remove the needle. It’s that easy.
Now reward your cat with more petting. You’ll need to dispose off the used syringe in an appropriate container. If you don’t have a syringe disposal container like Liza’s, ask your veterinarian for an alternative option and be sure to dispose off it according to local regulations. Please remember that no other information replaces the advice of your veterinarian. So don’t ever hesitate to contact your veterinary hospital with questions about your cat’s condition or treatment.
I hope this video has been helpful and thanks for watching.
