Caninsulin is a type of insulin specially formulated for use in dogs and cats. It is used to treat ‘sugar diabetes’, the symptoms of which include excessive drinking and urination, appetite changes and weight loss. Caninsulin will only be prescribed for a pet after a veterinary surgeon has run tests to confirm that a pet has diabetes mellitus.
