  • Insulin Auto Inject tools

    Wondering if anyone has recent experience with jet injector (like zoepetjet)vs. needle? We're considering the zoepetjet- but so far can only find info on it from manufacturer website but have not been able to find any user reviews. Sounds really positive per the website--but again I'd like some independent feedback.

    Our quick background: we're newly diagnosed (mid-Jan) JRTerrier and we're increasigly getting worse with needle injections. Just got the inject-ease but have not used it yet because during my initial trials I can see the needle/syringe moving when I depress syringe plunger and I'm concerned this may be even more painful than w/o device (or maybe my device is defective?). Thanks.

    A couple of people have used the InjectEase with success. Not sure if anyone has used a jet injector.

      To be honest, I hadn't heard of the ZoePetJet. I had to look it up.
      It does say insulin absorption can increase with its use. Something to watch for.

      The injection sites are interestingly different as well

      And this is the dosage guideline It might make fine tuning doses a bit more difficult in the same way insulin pens aren't able to make small 1/4 to 1/2 unit adjustments.

      This is an interesting article on why Jet injectors haven't caught on in humans though they've been around since the late '70s:

      If you decide to try it, please do let us know how it goes. We've had a handful of owners use the Inject-Ease as Natalie said and one that used an Auto-inject with good results.

        I wonder if you need to use it on bare skin? Didn't see that in the information...should go look again.

        I did go look...didn't say. Interesting product tho.
