Commonly prescribed for: Diabetes
Species: Dogs and Cats
Therapeutic Class: Long-acting insulin
Protamine zinc insulin (PZI) is a long-acting insulin that is used in the treatment of diabetes, a relatively common disease seen in middle-aged cats and dogs. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas which helps regulate blood sugar levels. Diabetic patients have high blood sugar levels (hyperglycermia). Because diabetic patients don't produce enough insulin on their own, insulin injections are given. In addition to using insulin, the successful management of your pet's diabetes requires your commitment to lifestyle and dietary management, and regular glucose testing. With appropriate management, most animals can have a normal life span.
We can let your veterinarian know that you are interested in our compounded Protamine Zinc Insulin.
