Possible Side Effects

The most common insulin-related side effect is low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) with symptoms that include; lethargy, staggering gait, seizure or coma. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet has a medical problem or side effect from Vetsulin therapy. Other side effects may occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.

Drug & Food Interactions

Vetsulin can be given with other medications, but your veterinarian may adjust your dose depending on insulin requirements. Progestogen and glucocorticoids should be avoided while taking Vetsulin, as they may counter the effect of insulin. Talk to your veterinarian about any other prescriptions, over the counter medications, vitamins, minerals and herbal products your pet is taking before using Vetsulin.

Precautions

Seek emergency veterinary medical attention if your pet experiences difficulty breathing, swelling of the lips, tongue, or face, or hives, as these may be a sign of an allergic reaction.
