Lispro is an ultra-shrot acting insulin product used for treatment of canine diabetes mellitus.

It is frequently used to assist recovery of dogs with diabetic ketoacidosis.

Mean biochemical resolution of ketoacidosis in dogs treated with lispro insulin has been shown to be significantly shorter than in dogs treated with regular insulin[1].

Recommended dose rate is 0.09 U/kg given as a constant rate infusion.
