Vetsulin bubbles?
Does anyone else use Vetsulin? Instructions from manufacturer say to shake it to activate the crystals, then wait til foam disappears. I do, but get tons of fizzy little bubbles in it which I am sure lowers the overall dose my little guy is getting. In a bigger dog might not make a huge difference but Romeo gets 1.5 units so bubbles take a lot. Iíve tried flicking. Ive tried hitting the syringe with a pen. Iíve tried pulling insulin up and down, etc. and bubbles stick to plunger as well, donít know if thatís a flaw in the syringe? Help!

Re: Vetsulin bubbles?
The instructions for Caninsulin, the Canadian version, says to turn the vial upside down and back a few times. This gets the bottom crystals mixed into the solution.
Accomplishes the same thing as shaking but with less foam.
