Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I've been a veterinarian for 15 years. This shouldn't be a bad situation. Any insulin eaten should be in the stomach where it will get digested / broken down and not cause any glucose level alterations. If there was a cut on the gums, then could some get absorbed? Chances of that are slim. Insulin is given as an injectable in people and pets as it doesn't survive the intestinal tract. Some feel the perfect world is an oral insulin product that saves having to give injections but this isn't possible - yet.
The bigger concern here would possibly be if portions of the pump were missing and he has eaten them to maybe cause a foreign body situation.
