If the cat develops an infection, inflammation, neoplasia, endocrine issue, or medical disorder, or if his or her food, body weight, or concomitant drugs alter, modifications may be required. A veterinarian should check the cat on a regular basis to alter the dose based on glycemic control and clinical symptoms. Immediately after or with a meal, take this supplement. 0.1IU to 0.3IU per pound of body weight every 12 hours is the suggested starting dose. Follow the instructions on the Client Information Sheet that came with the medication. Inject subcutaneously on the back of the cat`s neck or on the side. Never use a product containing clumps or persistent particles (after gently rolling). In insulin suspensions, visible white clumps or particles may appear. The suspension should be white and hazy once it has been mixed. Before taking a dosage, gently roll the vial to incorporate the prozinc. Never agitate or shake the vial. Only use for injections under the skin. Use only a U-40 syringe; any other syringe will result in dosage errors.
