Default Re: jet injector--seeking any user feedback

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

The injection sites are interestingly different as well http://zoepetjet.com/images/injectionsites.gif

And this is the dosage guideline http://zoepetjet.com/images/dosagechart.gif 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: http://www.articlesbase.com/diseases...n-4278656.html

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.
