Cat / Dog Insulin Protector
We bought this after a terrible accident, we all know what I’m talking about… I dropped the brand new insulin on the ground. It was slippery and cold and I dropped it! Our cat needs insulin twice a day and I was devastated! I went to Amazon, where you can find anything, and this came up. I purchased it right away! I do recommend for cat insulin to cut the bubbled tip off, as it fits much better and it DOES NOT lower the protection at all. Outstanding protection, I would recommend this to anyone who uses insulin (human or pet). Best amazon purchase to date!
Protects the bottle
Save your insulin vials
Love this product. Wish I had these years ago. Best thing I could have bought.
Best produce design
I don’t have a need for the product but a few friends do and I have seen work in action. Every time my friend drops his vile he tells me he just saved $300.
It’s a great product
It's a life saver when protecting the bottle
I love it. It protects the bottle when dropped. I was giving my dog her insulin. She take vetsulin. And when I put the bottle on the tablet fell over and rolled off the table and broke on the floor. Now its protected.
very easy to put on the vial
I love the colors so bright and cheery I can now have a sigh of relief for when an oopsie moment happens when handling a flying through the air vial of insulin cause all you can do is listen to that very expensive medicine hit the ground and break
Wish this had been around 10-15 years ago - at least 3 bottles of insulin would have been saved!
Saw this reviewed by Diabetes Mine recently and thought I’d splurge on what seems to be the best solution for someone on MDI like me. I have a Sugar Medical case that was designed for pen users, so I’ve always worried my Lantus vial would slip out when I opened it, especially while traveling (I put the Humalog vial in the elastic loop meant for test strips). Over the years I’ve shattered 3 priceless bottles of insulin this way, and always hoped I’d find a better case or some kind of vial shield like these. The silicone is flexible and seems thick enough to last, and is easy to clean with soap and water. As pictured, you are able to see how much insulin is left in the bottle and the top accommodates the vial cap easily for filling syringes. Just wish I’d had these years ago!
These are great! Love them.
GREAT product and GREAT customer service!
I have a 12 year old Type 1 and I cannot tell you how many (very expensive) bottles of insulin would be broken if it weren’t for these protectors! And on top of that, the customer service is excellent and quick to respond! Happy to continue giving this company my business.
Response from Vial Safe
Thanks for the kind words! We so appreciate you!!!!
No more broken insulin bottles and lost $$
Given the cost of insulin, breaking 1 bottle can cost you hundreds of dollars. This case will pay for itsef over and over again. It protects your insulin and if it rolls of the counter or falls from your hand…it will bounce rather than break. It is the best idea yet!! (aside from pharma lowering the cost of insulin all together!!)
Great product, avoid buying extra insulin after a break
Exactly what I needed, fits great now I don’t worry about breaking my dogs insulin bottle
I just received this yesterday and haven’t had a chance to test it out.. But I love it already. I have rubber sleeves for my stainless steel water bottles and they definitely protect my bottle. This is essentially the same thing for my insulin vial. I have broken a vial once and am very cautious since then. This protective case puts my mind at ease. I’ll test it and update.
Works great for my Lantus vials.
Sent from Above
These silicone protectors are literally Heaven Sent. Because of diabetic neuropathy, I am frequently dropping things. Imagine the loss of $ from a broken vial of insulin. Or, even worse, picture your dog lapping up insulin from the floor..it would surely be deadly. I am so thankful to have received these vial covers in good condition and they fit perfectly. I gave them the bounce test on the table…totally work! Thank you.
Amazing! Fits perfectly!
These are great!! I broke my dog’s brand new Novolin vial that only had one dose taken out of it.. FRUSTRATING! So, I bought these (because I’m clumsy and can’t afford to keep breaking full insulin vials). They fit the vial perfectly. I’m not gutsy enough to drop it from a high distance, but I dropped it from about 2 feet onto my countertops and the vial bounced. These are great and everyone should have them if you’re handling these tiny little vials!
This is a diabetic essential. Not only does it effectively protect my liquid gold, but it also helps the vial stand out. This helps not to lose my insulin, as I am notorious for doing this!
Keeps Insulin Safe & easy on & off! Great Buy!
This is perfect! I once had an entire vial of insulin fly right out of my hand while shaking it up & it smashed everywhere. When I saw this while looking for a medication thermometer, I snapped it right up. It has since saved me from another vial breaking when I opened a mini fridge and it came tumbling out. It doesn’t get in the way of inserting the needle and it doesn’t completely cover the bottle so it stays cold in the fridge & it comes on & off easily. Why wouldn’t you get it to be on the safe side? Insulin is expensive & what if the time I broke the bottle it had been my last vial? I would have been racing around at night trying to get another with the clock ticking because it has to be taken at a certain time.
I recently broke an insulin bottle right before dinner and had to drive home to get a new one. That’s when I decided I needed to get this little gadget. Works great and I can still get into the vial without taking off the cover.
Saved my bottle
Saved my bottle when I dropped it while rolling it.
Well worth the money
We recieved these in the Mil today, they are exactly as described and are a life saver!
Protects glass vials
Perfect for protecting glass vial. Wonderful invention.
Money saver. If you're a diabetic, consider these
“I have diabetes. I have a service dog. Once in a great while he might drop my insulin pouch when bringing it to me,
When he does sometimes the bottle breaks. Insulin is too expensive to waist. These have been great. My dog put it to the test only a few days after I got them. The dog was bringing the pouch down stairs he dropped it. The vial didn’t break.”
Ease of use
“To hold insulin vials
Works very well and easy to use”
Solid product, recommend!
I’m really happy with this item. I definitely trust that my insulin are protected and donâ€™t worry about crushing/breaking them as much. This is a great find.
A must have and worth the cost. As a type 1 diabetic I use these to ensure my liquid gold doesn’t break if I drop it. I highly recommend spending the money for this product.
Well made and a must for all who have dropped an insulin bottle and had to buy another. Would be nice if the bottom was a little stiffer so the bottle would stand more securely.
Fits snug onto insulin bottle. Works great for keeping bottle safe in case of dropping and while in backpack at school.
Good fit, easy install.
Bought these on amazon prime — price was good. Never tried the product before so I was anxious to see them. I was not disappointed – the arrived on time and the fit like a glove. The have a quality feel to them. I’m not sure if they will yellow over time, but even if they do, it should not hinder their performance. At this point, I would highly recommend them if you are using vials.
Great product for clumsy hands.
I bought these for my husband being that he accidentally dropped several vials of insulin before. Great idea and product! Pricey to be honest for a piece of silicone but compared to the price of insulin it’s nothing. Thanks.
Insulin bottle protector
Works perfect, so now I won’t worry so much if I drop the bottle
Insulin Vial Cover
I don’t know how I didn’t come across this product sooner! Very good! Hard to see when the insulin is ending but it does it job well at protecting it! 🙂
Write on them
These are very protective and I write on them if it’s fast or wtite on themslow acting insulin.
Wonderful insulin bottle cover
I use these to protect my dogs vetsulin bottles. I’m glad I bought these
Perfect fit and no more worries!
This is a great idea! Fits perfectly and never have to worry about breaking the vial if it gets dropped!
We pay way too much to risk breaking a vial! After dropping a vial and shattering it, I bought this and have not broken one since. Iâ€™m able to use it in my PDM case with no issues.
Protect your insulin!!!!!!!
Where have these been all my life?!
I’m so glad I stumbled upon these. I HIGHLY recommend! Easy to get on and off and fits snuggly! I’m clumsy and these save me daily from dropping my Lantus and Humalog while dosing!
They fit my Lantus Insulin bottle just fine.
Protects my insulin bottles
Works well and has openings so one can read the label on the bottle.
Keeps insulin bottle safe from breaking
fits insulin bottle well
Serious life saver I plan to buy more I gave one to my son’s school for his insulin just incase.. But we’ve dropped with this on it and no breakage happened!!
Perfect for protecting insulin bottles!!
Wish I had known about this product before now! Perfect for protecting insulin bottles!
Saves your vials!
Easy to put on and durable. Greats a great protection if bottle is dropped or knocked over.
Works really well for grip
Got this for my dad after he dropped and broke a bottle. He hasn’t dropped one since. It’s very helpful
Well worth it!
These are awesome!! Insulin is costly as it is, these little guys protect the bottle!!
I have a diabetic Pomeranian, and have to give two injections a day. I dropped the vial a few weeks ago spilling “MONEY” all over the floor. I had to go buy a new vail quickly. Researching a way to prevent this in the future, I ran across this item and purchased it immediately. I hadn’t had it on more than a week when I dropped the vial again on my kitchen floor, but the outcome was soooo different. The vial survived the fall thank goodness. I recommend this product!!!
This is a great product! My insulin vials are safe from breaking
