Hello,

Unfortunately, no, it would be completely ineffective.

I would work with your vet to try some different techniques for administration of the insulin. Also, there are a few different types of insulin needle sizes. They might be able to go a bit smaller to make it a little easier.

Wish there was a different answer but the insulin cannot be given orally.
