If I forgot to give my cat his insulin shot and gave it to

Resolved Question:

If I forgot to give my cat his insulin shot and gave it to him 4 hrs later. When should I give him his next shot, should I skip the next one to get him back on his routine, I give it to him every 12 hrs. regularly?

Yes, I recommend skipping his next insulin dose. The risk would be that the most recent injection will not have worn off, and a second injection could cause his blood glucose level to dip too low.


After skipping one dose, you can begin giving your normal twice daily dosing again.
