Insulin units to ml

I am giving my cat allergy injections. Would .1 ml = 10 units? It gradually increases to 1ml. Am I on the right track?????
Thanks in advance!!!!

Re: Insulin units to ml

insulin is used for diabetics so I don't know how it would compare to allergy medication, you should really ask a pharmacist.

the insulin that I use is 10 ML 100 units/ML
the 10 ML refers to the amount in the whole vial.

Re: Insulin units to ml

Let me put it this way. I've got a 1cc, 100unit syringe and the allergy medication says to give .1ml. Would that be 10units on the syringe size stated above?

You should read post #21 above, then contact your doctor or pharmacist.

We'd love to help but where your health is concerned you probably shouldn't trust strangers on the internet. Better safe than sorry.

Please heed Sandras advice! Giving your cat an insulin injection may easily kill it!

Insulin is a diabetes medication and can be potentialy lethal. Anyone who had a case of severe hypoglycemia after miscalculating his or her insulin dosage will know what I mean...

Re: Insulin units to ml

Ok now.....didn't make myself too clear here. I'm using insulin syringes. I've got 1cc, 100 unit syringe. The instructions on the allergy meds say to give .1ml. Would that be 10 units on syringe....just trying to find a syringe. NOT giving my cat insulin........

Re: Insulin units to ml

I would recommend speaking to your vetinarian (sp?) as presumably they supplied the medication and syringe and would be best to advise you on the actual dosage.

This is one area I think even the best mathmetician on this site (not actually speaking as one ) wouldn't like to think they were responsible for a cat OD'ing.

Re: Insulin units to ml

I have the same problem as the first question. My cat needs an injection of a very small amount of medicine. This injection is NOT insulin. The Vet sold me insulin syringes to use because they are supposed to handle smaller doses. I'm supposed to inject .05 cc (or ml) of prednisone. I can't figure out how to convert cc's to units in order to put the correct amount of medicine in the syringe. Isn't there some simple mathematical relationship in volume between unit and cc?
